If you are interested in space exploration, you might want to understand the history of the main professional space promoting organisation in the UK and the history of UK space sector (if you are British or want to work in the UK space sector). UKSEDS members are warmly encouraged to attend this talk to learn about space organisations (like the BIS), how BIS promoted space exploration, the successes & failures, and what can be improved and what can be done differently.

“Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.”
Edmund Burke (British Statesman and Philosopher, 1729-1797)
