Ken is a NASA Astronaut with experience of five Space Shuttle Missions, two as Commander and a long duration space mission as the Commander of the International Space Station.

An Evening with Ken Bowersox will be taking place on the 15th October in association with our partners ‘Pint of Science’. This event is a chance to come and hear all about space missions with a real NASA astronaut and a former Director of Kennedy Space Center, Jay Honeycutt. The evening will also include some exciting presentations from lecturers at King’s College, London. Professor Steve Harridge will be teaching us about ‘The effect of Space travel on muscles’ and Dr. Julie Keeble will be filling us in on the topic of ‘Student experiments on the International Space Station’. Tickets can be purchased at this link.

Ken will also be leading the Astronaut Leadership Experience Programme in the Lake District as part of his visit. This programme is taking place on 16th – 18th October, 2015. You can sign up here for this programme.
