New Seminar Series: Space Exploration in Asia

Dear colleagues

I'm delighted to be able to announce a new series of seminars on space exploration, beginning on 25 January.

This new multidisciplinary series is going to look at the development of space exploration in Asia, with the first season focusing on Japan. For each season we will invite scholars and representatives of the space sector—including astronauts, engineers and scientists—to discuss the history and current practice of space exploration as pursued in and perceived from the respective regions.
