Helen Sharman Announced as Keynote Speaker

Helen Sharman now and in her astronaut outfit from 1991

Helen Sharman became the first British Astronaut and first Western European woman in space in May 1991, aged 27, when she launched on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. She spent 8 days orbiting the Earth, living and working on the Mir Space Station (*in the modern Russian language, “Mir” can be translated as “peace” or “world”.)   Helen celebrates her 30th Anniversary in May 2021. She was selected from 13,000 applicants but didn’t think she stood a chance of being chosen when she applied, after hearing an advert on the radio on her way home after work. Sharman is passionate about Space, STEM and the wonders of science. She 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. Sharman was awarded the OBE in 1993. In the New Year Honours List of 2018, she was further awarded a rare and special honour, being made a Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George (CMG) for services to Science and Technology Educational Outreach. She received the CMG personally from Her Majesty The Queen at Windsor Castle in February 2018.
