Outer space, stars, sky - Astrophysics

Mankind is preparing for a new space age: space agencies are planning manned missions to the Moon and to Mars, while commercial ventures may open up the prospect for non-astronauts to visit other planets.  During this event, we will engage in a multi-disciplinary discussion on the future of Human Space Exploration.  Firstly, Dr Elisa Ferré (Psychology Department, RHUL) will explain how microgravity impacts on human physiology and in particular cognition.   Then, Prof Jill Marshall (School of Law, RHUL) will reveal how law and human rights are applied in outer space.  Finally, Prof Adam Roberts (English Department, RHUL) will look at the presence of space exploration in Science Fiction.  Human Space Exploration gives us much to think about and discuss.
