Yet another stunning keynote lecture

The final day of our International Conference started with a stimulating and inspirational lecture from Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock giving us 'A Tour of the Universe'. Maggie's talk covered her own career and how she became interested in space through the original incarnation of the Clangers! She spoke passionately about her work and about her desire to get more girls involved in STEM. She not only took her audience through the solar system and beyond but also asked questions about human activity in space and possibilities of living on Mars (where she has hopes of visiting herself!). Lots of tweets on #PSTTBelfast and on from impressed delegates.
