“We can restore the sense of wonder and adventure in space exploration that we knew in the summer of 1969. We won the moon lace; now it’s time of use to live and work on Mars”.

Join us as we explore humanity’s first attempts to establish a permanent settlement on Mars. Adrian Hayes, Iya Whiteley and Jill Stuart bring together expertise from the world’s of exploration, science and law to guide us through how humans will live in a new ear in which space exploration is no longer about the journey.

Adrian Hayes is a British record – breaking polar explorer and adventure, author, keynote speaker, leadership, team and executive coach, documentary presenter and sustainability campaigner.

Iya Whiteley is a Director of the Centre for Space Medicine at Mullard Space Science Laboratory, UCL, and has been selected as the new Chair of the Space Environment Working Group advising to the UK Space Agency.

Jill Stuart is an academic based at the London School of Economics and Political Science. She is an expert in the politics, ethics and law of outer space exploration and exploitation.

The discussion will be chaired by Dallas Campbell, presenter of BBC One’s Bang Goes the Theory, and author of Ad Astra: An illustrated Guide to Learning the Planet – “The next best thing to actually heading off into space”.

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7pm.

This event will be filmed and on the Ri’s YouTube Channel within a few months.
