What kind of collaboration does it take to make extraordinary endeavours possible?
In “Handprints on Hubble,” Kathy Sullivan, the first American woman to walk in space, describes in vivid detail working with other astronauts, engineers and scientists on the world’s most famous observatory, one that revolutionised our way of looking at the universe - the Hubble Space Telescope.
Unique in its design, the Hubble was built to evolve and be updated with the latest scientific equipment. Kathy describes inventing the tools and processes that made on-orbit maintenance possible; what it feels like to be blasted into space; and the nuts-and-bolts tasks, problem-solving, and teamwork that it takes to make extraordinary human feats of achievement possible.
Don’t miss this special RSA event with Kathy Sullivan,as she reflects on her time working at NASA during a period of great discovery and one that transformed our understanding of the universe and our place in it.
