Friday 7 June at 8pm
Space historian Piers Bizony (author of The NASA Archives) presents a stunning illustrated talk filled with plenty of things you probably didn’t know about the Apollo missions. For instance, why did all the launch technicians at the Kennedy Space Centre sit with their backs to the huge windows of the control room, so they couldn’t see the spectacular lift-offs? And why were the craft skills of seamstresses and dressmakers so important for the world’s first “fly-by-wire” guidance computers that took us to the moon?
He will be introduced by Niki McCretton, Artistic Director of Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company, who has made several shows for both children and adults inspired by space travel.
