+TEDxESA announce another speaker for the event on 11 November...
 
Happy to introduce our next speaker – Geraint (Taff) Morgan!

Think ESA’s Rosetta mission was all about orbiting and landing on a comet?

Think again. It was about much more! 

Taff Morgan will tell his story of what Rosetta’s technology can be used for – and how he even started his own business as a result, which is now part of ESA Business Incubation Centre​ Harwell. 

So what do bacteria causing stomach ulcers, blood sucking creatures (better known as bed bugs), submarines and Rosetta have in common? 

Find out at ‪#‎TEDxESA‬ #ScienceBeyondFiction

Thomas Pesquet sera le 10e astronaute français -et le plus jeune- à partir dans l'espace en 2016... Ou mercredi prochain. Car il est le joker de l'un des 3 astronautes à partir sur l'ISS. Comment devient-on astronaute ? Que mange-t-on "là-haut" ? A J-1 du décollage, il répondra en direct à toutes vos questions mardi à 18h. D'ici là, posez-les ici.
