EJCC Live! The Second Stage of Space – Bernard Farkin 7.30 pm

1st June 2023


Bernard Farkin
Managing Director of ScotSpace, the Scottish Space Corporation

in conversation with
Writer/director David Ian Neville

Bernard was born in Antwerp, Belgium, and grew up there and in Israel and Sweden. A neuroscientist by training with an MSc from Stirling University on the subject of neuromuscular control in microgravity (weightlessness), he has worked in the aerospace domain for over thirty years. His work has taken him to the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Israel and the Czech Republic, mainly working for the European Space Agency (ESA) and the aerospace industry. He has now more or less returned to his roots, again working in microgravity R&D in Scotland at the Prestwick Spaceport, currently as part of an ESA Consortium involving two other European Spaceports. As well as laying the foundation for a microgravity R&D Centre in Prestwick he fully expects to be the oldest human in space one day.

This event is free, but donations are welcome.
