Informal Talk: Dr. Jackie Bell – “Preparing for Astronaut Selection”

Friday, 23rd April 2021 @ 19:00 - 21:00 BST

This informal and/or short talk will take place on Friday, April 23rd from 19:00 to 21:00.

These informal talks are for LAS members only. These talks will be much less formal than the main meetings; there won’t be any Society Business section at the start, and they won’t be minuted.
The exact format will depend on the individual talk itself.

Could you be the next European Space Agency astronaut? Join Dr. Jackie Bell, mathematician and theoretical particle physicist as she shares her unique experience as a candidate on the BBC documentary series “Astronauts: Do You Have What it Takes?” (iPlayer link) and tips for this year’s astronaut recruitment and selection process.

As this is an informal/short talk, there won’t be any Society business or minutes taken, however Dr. Bell has kindly agreed that we can record the talk for later viewing by LAS members.
After the talk itself there will be an open forum discussion for everyone to ask questions, discuss the answers, etc.

The session will be recorded for members to replay afterwards.

Please note, due to COVID-19 this meeting is ONLINE-ONLY.
Society members have been sent Zoom & YouTube links.

A recording IS available for this lecture, to LAS members only, on request.
If you still have the invite e-mail (sent 22nd April 2021 @ 19:42), you can also use the YouTube link from that.


With best wishes – Mark
