International Space Station Flight Control

When astronauts call Earth, Andrea Boyd answers. Stationed at the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, Andrea is part of the Flight Control team for the International Space Station. In this unique talk, Andrea discusses Mission Control around the world, a day in the life of the ISS, the training required to make it there and what really happens to your body in microgravity. This evening talk in the Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre is part of the David Elder Lecture series 2019/2020. Glasgow Science Centre is proud to host the David Elder Lectures in partnership with the University of Strathclyde's Department of Physics.
