The University has held the last of the successful 2010 Science and Society lectures.
The series culminated in a lecture by former Chief Scientist at NASA, Professor Larry DeLucas.
Professor DeLucas spoke about his time preparing for, and eventually being one of, the crew of Space Shuttle Columbia in 1992. Over a two-week period the crew conducted a wide variety of experiments relating to materials processing and fluid physics. At the end of the mission, Professor DeLucas had travelled over 5.7 million miles in 221 earth orbits and had logged over 331 hours in space.
