The CHRISTMAS LECTURES Zone of I’m an Astronaut was funded by the Royal Institution so that schools and the general public could continue the conversation about the lectures’ theme ‘How to survive in space’ with the presenter Kevin Fong and other experts in the field of human space missions and space technology.
The 14 experts involved ranged from ESA astronauts, to doctors researching the effects of extreme conditions on the human body in Antarctica, to satellite engineers working on protecting spacecraft during launch, to astrobiologists looking at how life survives in space. This was the busiest CHRISTMAS LECTURES zone yet across many measures of activity. In particular, there were 37 live chats between students and experts over the four weeks (compared to 20 last year) and more than five times the number of questions submitted in ASK.
