8pm this coming Friday 24th August 2018 we have Jacquie Milner giving another talk aimed at beginners, but enjoyable by all, this time about “Robotic Space Missions; Now and the Near Future”!
We might not be sending humans any further than the International Space Station at the moment but there are many robotic space missions on the go further out amongst the planets of the solar system, all pouring reams of data back to Earth. Let’s take a moment to run through those that are currently active, those that are about to see some action and some that will be worth watching out for in the years to come. It pays to look forward to the long term in space exploration – it is usually worth the wait!
