Monday 31 August 2020 from 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Space historian Kerrie Dougherty delves into the fascinating story of space projects that never were.

Most people would be familiar with the iconic images of the Apollo lunar program, but the reality of the first human exploration of the Moon was markedly different to the visions of lunar exploration that had been proposed since the early 1950s.

Join this talk with space historian Kerrie Dougherty as she reveals the amazing ideas and programs that were perhaps too ambitious, too expensive, too technically difficult to achieve at the time — or simply were not politically acceptable.

Join us on Zoom to discover past visions of a spacefaring future from Britain, Europe, the USSR and Australia, as well as those of the US space program.

This will be a virtual event via Zoom.
