Opening address by Jean-Pierre Jouyet, French Ambassador to the UK
Discover the brave new worlds of outer space with astronauts Timothy Peake and Thomas Pesquet and British space scientist and presenter of BBC’s The Sky at Night, Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock. We will examine the new challenges for space exploration and assess the impact of space discoveries. Why, though, do we need to project ourselves into the universe in the first place? Jean-Yves Le Gall (Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales) and Graham Turnock (UK Space Agency) will also join the debate.
