White Space with Beth Healey

Sunday 23 February, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Suitability: 12 Yrs +


In 2017, medical doctor Beth Healey conducted a year-long mission for the European Space Agency to Concordia Station in Antarctica, also known as ‘White Mars’. Beth’s role was to investigate the effects of this extreme environment, with its isolation, inaccessibility, altitude and low light levels, on the physiology and psychology of the overwinter crew. Join Beth to learn about her daily life in this most inhospitable environment and the lessons learned for future settlements on Mars.
This event is part of Antarctica Insight, a UK wide cultural programme marking the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica.
