Science Museum - What's on this month

Cosmonauts curator talks
Join us for a series of talks and events to accompany the ground-breaking Cosmonauts exhibition. Highlights include:
Women in Space
23 October

In 1963, Tereshkova was rocketed into the cosmos, becoming the first ever woman in space. How will gender equality play out in future space programmes?

Are We Destined to Live in Space?
13 November

The Russian space programme was rooted in the belief that the destiny of humanity rested on colonising the cosmos. This philosophical talk will examine what drives humans to travel to space.

Staying Alive in Space

The Russian space programme has been a pioneering force in researching methods to enable earthlings to inhabit the cosmos. This talk discusses the vital research into deep space travel and its affect on our body and mind.
