One of NASA’s most experienced veteran astronauts, British born Dr.Michael Foale, will be in Abingdon this week. The picture shows him taking part in an epic eight-hour spacewalk in 1999 to upgrade the computer on the Hubble Space Telescope. The Hubble Telescope continues to bring images and discoveries eighteen years on.
He will be giving a public lecture at the Amey Theatre at 7:30pm on Tuesday 30th January.
At the last count (21:07 on 28/01/2018) there were just 16 tickets in the theatre upstairs and down. The countdown is on. There may still be tickets available from here.
