The presentation promises a fascinating insight into what training entails, how it feels during launch, and what a spacewalk and re-entry to Earth looks like.
Speaking about the experience audiences will get from his talk Tim said: “It’s impossible to look down on Earth from space and not be mesmerised by the fragile beauty of our planet.”
The Lowry said: “Tim will reveal the secrets, the science and the everyday wonders of how and why humans journey into space.”
My Journey to Space will be at The Lowry on 6th November 2021 and tickets are available to book here.
