About this event

Libby Jackson is the Astronaut Flight Education Programme Manager for the UK Space Agency, so she is responsible for helping everyone in Britain to find out about Tim Peake’s time on the International Space Station (ISS).

She used to be a flight director on space missions, ensuring that everyone worked together and everything went according to plan. Flight directors talk to everyone involved, from the astronauts to the scientists on Earth to the people who are responsible for making the rockets work. A flight director's most important tasks are to keep the astronauts safe, to check that all the planned experiments take place in space, and, of course, to sort out any problems that crop up. Yes, this can happen, but the flight director will always find the answer.

Libby Jackson will give a talk about Space as well as discuss amazing stories of people in SPACE
