About this event


A look back at failures over 50 years of rocketry and space travel.

We will see how chance, engineering error and unforeseen circumstances can turn success into failure in the blink of an eye and learn how human ingenuity has sometimes snatched missions, and astronauts, back from the brink of disaster.

Featuring runaway rockets, crippled satellites, what really happened to Apollo 13, saving space stations and the 'curse of Mars'.

Speaker

Dr John Davies, Astronomer, Royal Observatory, Edinburgh
