What's it like to work in space?  UK Alumni seminar, 17 July 2017

Should Australia have a space agency? How do we keep people healthy when travelling in space? Will we ever send someone to Mars? These were some of the provoking questions our speakers - Andrea Tom and Emile -  tackled at our event on Monday night. It was great to see so many South Australian alumni at the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies for this insightful evening.

You can see pictures from the evening in our Facebook and LinkedIn groups (which you should join, if you haven’t already to stay up to date with our activity).
