60 Years in Space

“60 Years in Space – how Filton made its mark on the universe” by Terry Ransome

In 1957 the USSR stunned the world with the launch of Sputnik. But how long was it before Britain got something into space?  Filton’s space work was mostly aimed at science research and earth observation, which meant that its products reached some incredible places.

Terry Ransome joined BAC at Filton in 1971 and worked with its successor companies until taking early retirement in late 2003. He will be giving an overview of many spacecraft and related products (at least 30) – and showing how they really did travel the universe or help us understand it better.
