Get all the answers… or at least what scientists have discovered so far… from Anu Ojha, Director of the UK National Space Academy programme and a Director of the National Space Centre – the UK’s largest visitor centre for space science and astronomy. Anu is visiting NAIS Pudong with a team of scientists from the Academy to deliver masterclasses for NAIS Pudong students and teachers, as well as a fun Saturday workshop, from Thursday 17th to Saturday 19th March.
As part of his visit, he will deliver a public lecture “Space – So What?” on Thursday 17th March from 6:30pm in the Auditorium at NAIS Pudong and all families and friends of NAIS Pudong are invited to attend.
This will be no ordinary lecture. Anu will be bringing with him some of the prized possessions of the Academy (for now a secret) along with his insider’s knowledge of what is currently happening in space science. As Principal Investigator for one of the educational experiments conducted by Tim Peake aboard the space station, Anu is in constant contact with the astronaut – although he certainly couldn’t save him when the space station was invaded by a gorilla. Watch the video here.
A thrill-seeker himself, over the last twenty years Anu has been involved in high-altitude expeditions, free-diving and scuba diving and has a deep interest in human performance/physiological science in extreme environments. A current skydiver with over 1300 jumps, he was also involved as an independent science analyst for the Red Bull Stratos stratospheric jump programme.
Don’t miss what is sure to be a thoroughly amazing lecture.
