[cpastro] Next weeks meeting Wednesday February 15th 2023: "Yuri Gagarin and the Chief designer"

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.
