Café Scientifique - 'It is Rocket Science! A look at the challenges and technologies of satellites and space'
We are delighted to announce that Mike Lawton, CEO of Oxford Space Systems is coming to talk at our next Café Scientifique.
many engineering tasks are relatively straightforward challenges. However,
many effects – some obvious and some not quite so obvious conspire to make
space a uniquely challenging environment. Any design must survive significant
vibration and extremes of temperature and radiation. Mike’s talk will look at
some of these challenges as well explore what the next wave of satellite
technology will look like in the so-called ‘NewSpace’ age. Mike will
demonstrate some of the technologies and novel materials local space hardware
company Oxford Space Systems is developing for the new space age.
