Any London based Toy Soldiers interested in making this into a small T.S.O.S.D. invasion?
27 October – Landing on a comet: The inside story with:
Matt Taylor, project scientist, Rosetta project
Monica Grady, professor of planetary sciences, The Open University.
It’s been a rollercoaster ride played out in space. After travelling 6.4 billion kilometres, the Rosetta spacecraft caught up with comet 67P. Philae, a tiny probe, then landed on the comet and sent back data before lapsing into sleep. Only months later did it wake up and make contact. Find out about these dramatic events from two key players in the project. They will discuss the highs and lows, the engineering and the science. Crucially, what have Rosetta and Philae taught us about comets and the early solar system?
It is right after expo, and as I’ll be in London and saw the opportunity, I delayed my return flight and got a ticket for the event.
It’s £15.00 to visit. Near Covent Gardens.
