Subject: Journey Into Space - The Big Picture - 2020 Update

Journey into Space’ was a series of three lectures on the history of space travel Hugh started in 2010.

The third lecture back in 2012 looked at ‘everything else’; the major players, the launchers they are using, the orbits that are using and what the satellites and probes are doing.

This lecture is a 2020 update of the third lecture. It includes significant activities that have occurred since 2011, including the entry of New Zealand into the space launch business.
