It is rocket science and it is brain surgery… the latest ISSET webinar with astronaut Dafydd Rhys Williams: 30th April 19.00 BST


LIVE Webinar: Space Talking with An Astronaut 

Astronaut & Brain Surgeon Dafydd Rhys (Dave) Williams

My Brain in Space

This Thursday 30th April at 7pm BST, astronaut, neurological and cardiac surgeon and telemedicine pioneer, Dave Williams will take us through his experiences and to the amazing changes he found with “My Brain in Space”.

In his first space mission,sur he was in charge of Neurolab, which studied the effects of microgravity on the brain and the nervous system.

In his second space flight, he carried out three spacewalks focussing on installing components of the International Space Station. He has travelled almost 19 million kilometres in space and spent over 18 hours outside the spacecraft in the deadly environment of space.

Dave has been NASA’s Director of the Space and Life Sciences and Deputy Administrator for Crew Health and Safety at NASA Headquarters.

He is currently CEO of a biomedical company developing remote medical procedures to benefit remote communities and international crews on deep space missions.

Every Thursday an astronaut will give a LIVE presentation and Q&A. The programme is designed for adults and families and is for a limited sized audience.

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
