Hi All

This week we have "Yuri Gagarin and the Chief designer" by Terry Ransome.

Terry worked in the aerospace industry for over 30 years – building and testing satellites and spacecraft, that took him to launch sites around the world, the most memorable perhaps being a launch campaign at the Russian site at Baikonur in Kazakhstan – with the UK’s Beagle2 Mars Probe.

That done, he took early retirement but became heavily involved with the British Schools Museum in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. He managed the museum (as a volunteer) for 3 years, and was a Trustee for 6 years.

Terry is currently a Collections Research Volunteer at the Aerospace Bristol Museum.

It will be a good one.

Don't miss it.
