Threats from Space

Threats from space – Or… “Oh My God We’re All Gonna Die”

Nick Howes was formerly Deputy Director of Kielder Observatory and has over 20 years’ experience working at the cutting edge of Research and Development, as a synthesizer engineer.

His roles have included Sci-Comms for the European Space Agency, Communications and online development for the SKA Telescope, and Pro-Am Programme Manager for the Faulkes Telescopes, helping to discover scores of new asteroids. He has given talks all over the world, working with Apollo astronauts, flight controllers as well as project scientists on a huge range of projects.

Nick is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and works now as a test engineer and Space R&D for BMT Defence and Security, who were the architectural , team behind the QEC Aircraft Carrier, and have offices all over the world.

His Talk “Oh My God We’re All Gonna Die” takes us through the perceived threats in space, both real and surreal, and hones in on the ones that could truly change the face of our planet forever.

Suitable for all age ranges, this funny and equally scary talk will be one you’ll never forget.

Q&A is encouraged, and the best question will win a 4.6 billion year old meteorite donated by Nick.
