Good Morning
Last night in London we were traeted to a great talk by Anousheh Ansari. She gave a talk and showed her video. She then answered questions. The audience who included many British Interplanetary Society members also included Mark Shuttleworth the South Africain who flew to ISS as a private astronaut a couple of years ago. Sh then signed autographs for those who wanted them. A great lady who is contributing muchtop space exploration.
Have a good weekend.

Hi,
I can second that Rex. A great evening; she really came across as someone that had lived her dream.

She will be inspiring to all of the children and students she intends meeting in the future.

Needless to say all of the males in the audience wanted a photo with her. Brains, beauty and wealth....but enough of me (lol).

Thanks Rex, thanks BIS and thank you Anousheh,

Nick

Can I just add my endorsement to the other guys comments.

A super lady and a great evening all round.

I think what impressed me most was how accessible Anousheh was, signing all items placed before her and posing freely for pictures. No pre-conditions or fuss - just happy to meet everyone's wishes.

If anyone gets an opportunity to meet her and see her presentation elsewhere, in the future, I'd recommend you attend.

Tony
