Come along to this exciting presentation at Robert Gordon’s College and discover how technology and expertise developed for the oil and gas industry transforms human and robotic space exploration - past, present and future!

This talk will be delivered by NASA Engineer, Heather Paul, who is the Health and Medical Technical Authority for the Orion Crew and Service Module, ensuring that design decisions for this exploration initiative keep the crew healthy and able to perform their mission duties successfully. Heather will be joined by former NASA astronaut Carl Walz, who flew four spaceflight missions on the Space Shuttle and Space Station, logging 231 total days in space! Mr. Walz is now Director of Business Development for Oceaneering. Carl will discuss how underwater training made spacewalks by astronauts and cosmonauts safe and efficient, and how technologies developed for Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) subsea applications have enabled robotic servicing of the International Space Station (ISS) and will enable future robotic satellite servicing far beyond the reach of astronauts!
