Helen Sharman, the UK`s first astronaut, gives a vibrant account of her personal experience of life in space using models and film to illustrate the key scientific concepts involved in spaceflight.
Among other things she discusses the way Newton`s Third Law and convection apply to space flight, weightlessness and survival. She answers numerous questions from an audience of young school children (9-12 yrs).
|"...Helen is a dynamic presenter who clearly enjoys her work and communicates very effectively with children. It is unique in that Helen can speak from the experience of her flight in Mir. ... What she has to say is immensely interesting and really holds the students attention. " |
