Something for those who can't always get to the British Interplanetary Society's (BIS) meetings which are usually held in London.

A day long event - five speakers talking about various aspects of spaceflight. The list includes David Woods, author of "How Apollo Flew to the Moon".

This event is open to all. If you have never visited York - this is an ideal opportunity for a weekend trip perhaps?

I am surprised there has been no feed-back posted from the BIS?
