The Future of Flight
23 November, 2015 @ 7:45 pm - 9:00 pmFree
As the Science Museum prepares for their next major exhibition, focusing on the unique mechanical designs of Leonardo Da Vinci – one of history’s greatest curious minds – this event asks what the future of flight could look like.
This one-off panel event takes Leonardo’s innovative and skilled approach to the design of flying machines, based on his observations of the natural world, as a starting point, before looking at where today’s designers are finding their inspiration and how new technological developments might change how humankind flies in the future.
The panel includes:
- Ruth Mallors-Ray, Chief Operating Officer, Aerospace Technology Institute
- Carol Vorderman, Group Captain Ambassador to the RAF Air Cadets and qualified pilot
- Doug Millard, Deputy Keeper of Technologies and Engineering and Curator of Cosmonauts: Birth of the Space Age, Science Museum
- Chaired by Roger Highfield, Director of External Affairs, Science Museum Group
This event is free but booking is required.
