Kevin Fong to give the 2015 Royal Institution Christmas Lectures

2nd September 2015

Kevin Fong, a flying doctor and expert in space medicine, will use the Royal Institution Christmas lectures to explore how an immense controlled explosion propels astronauts into a beautiful and hostile environment where a single mistake can mean death in seconds.

The lecture series, How to Survive in Space, will hopefully include a live two-way video chat with Tim Peake, Britain’s first European Space Agency astronaut, who is set to arrive at the International Space Station for the start of his mission, Principia, days before the lectures begin.

The Royal Institution runs an online ballot for tickets to watch the lectures being filmed. The ballot is open to RI members and UK registered schools and will run from 3 to 24 September. More info can be found here:
