Dallas Campbell: Ad Astra!

Factual presenter Dallas Campbell, known for presenting BBC 4 series Horizon Guide, The Sky at Night and The Gadget Show on Channel 5, joined us at bluedot to explore the topic of his first book, ‘Ad Astra: An Illustrated Guide to Leaving the Planet’.

For 250,000 years humans have been firmly rooted to the earth. And sure it’s got some good things going for it: nice views, friendly people, good coffee, etc, but if you’ve had enough, if you’re looking for a complete change of scene, or just a bit of a break then this talk will had all* the information you’ll need.

*(The word ‘all’ is used imaginatively and is in no way intended to imply ‘all’.)
