Spaceflight is one of the most inspiring endeavours of humankind. Join ESA and experts from many disciplines as we look at how human spaceflight has changed our daily lives, what the future holds, and the inspiring research and work done across many disciplines and industries.

The Space for Inspiration event will take place on 14-15 September at the London Science Museum and features talks by ESA astronauts Tim Peake and Luca Parmitano, NASA astronaut Don Pettit and ESA Director General Jan Woerner.
