Overcoming Engineering Challenges in Space Mr Nicholas Ralph When we first ventured into space, engineering and physics was turned on its head. Battling extreme temperatures, micro gravity and radiation, the harsh reality of the true challenges behind space travel became clear. The unbound hostility of space takes no prisoners. Join us and learn how everyday devices we take for granted become deadly weapons, or totally useless, in the cold expanse of space. Includes presentation, short 3D movie and viewing of the night sky through a range of telescopes (weather permitting).
