About the Event

Skeptics on the Fringe Presents 

Dr. Alastair Bruce - Happy Birthday Tranquility Base 

Only 24 humans have ever gone to the Moon. Only twelve of those have walked on the surface of our nearest neighbour. One brought some tartan along for the ride. Journey with a space-race geek who never got to see a Saturn V fly and still won't forgive himself for missing a Space Shuttle launch. How did we do it? Why did we do it? What the heck does ""SCE to AUX"" mean? 

Alastair completed his PhD in astronomy in 2018 and now splits his time between researching active galaxies and working for the James Webb Space Telescope UK Public Engagement Campaign. He originally trained as an actor and is very passionate about communicating science to the general public. He's also a Space Race nerd and spends too much time playing Kerbal Space Program...
