Countdown to Space Walking with an Astronaut in Abingdon

January 28, 2018

Space Walking
One of NASA’s most experienced veteran astronauts, British born Dr.Michael Foale, will be in Abingdon this week. The picture shows him taking part in an epic eight-hour spacewalk in 1999 to upgrade the computer on the Hubble Space Telescope. The Hubble Telescope continues to bring images and discoveries eighteen years on.

He will be giving a public lecture at the Amey Theatre at 7:30pm on Tuesday 30th January.

At the last count (21:07 on 28/01/2018) there were just 16 tickets in the theatre upstairs and down. The countdown is on. There may still be tickets available from here.
