An Evening with Helen Sharman, the First British Astronaut

Birmingham, UK


Britain’s first astronaut, Helen Sharman, CMG, OBE, will appear in a special event at Town Hall, Birmingham to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and 60 years of NASA.

This is a very rare opportunity to see this British pioneer and role model speak publicly about space and the wonders of science.

Selected from 13,000 applicants Helen became the first British Astronaut when, in May 1991, she launched on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft and spent 8 days orbiting the Earth, living and working on the MIR Space Station.

A superb speaker, Helen eloquently describes the meticulous training and preparation, learning Russian, launch and landing, how weightlessness feels, her science experiments, the team spirit, and readjusting to life on Earth.  

This is a very rare opportunity to see this British pioneer and role model speak publicly about space and the wonders of science.
