NASA…It’s not just about space. Our lives are changing like never before. They’re being shaped by new technologies that fuse the physical, digital and biological worlds, converging to create the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’, and which are set to change things on the ground, and in the air.

Dr Shin will talk about how this change is driving projects such as how we use experimental aircraft to test advanced technologies that could transform how we fly, such as commercial supersonic planes; the technologies that can be part of an automated system for safe traffic management of drones; and new ways of using data from research to create a system that brings a favourite of science fiction closer to science fact, the ability to fly instead of drive, on demand through and around our cities.

Plus, from 5pm come and explore some of the exciting research from the University in our discover zone! This is the perfect opportunity to ask questions to our researchers and find out what's being developed in the future. This talk is aimed at ages 16+
