Rocket Women: Women in the Space Industry

Saturday 10th March 2018 3pm - 4pm Royal Festival Hall Chargeable Event

 

This event is part of the WOW - Women of the World Festival at the Southbank Centre.

 

Is space the real final frontier for women in the space industry?

 

We hear from the engineers, astrophysicists, astronomers and aspiring astronauts at the forefront of outer space exploration and celebrate the real-life rocket women powering the space industry.

 

In a year when the film Hidden Figures, telling the story of the brilliant African-American women working at NASA in the 1960s, became one of the highest-grossing films worldwide and the ‘Women of NASA’ LEGO set sold out in a matter of days, WOW investigates if space is the final frontier for gender equality.

 

There’s an inaugural trip to Mars on the horizon and commercial space travel is even closer, yet Tim Peake is still regularly cited as the first British astronaut, when in fact it was Helen Sharman.

 

Can advances in the culture of science match up with technological achievements?
