IN CONVERSATION WITH SUE NELSON AND SALON LONDON
Wally Funk is a world class aviation pioneer who in 1961 was set to become the first person in Space before her NASA program was
suddenly cancelled – just one week before blast-off. Now approaching her eightieth birthday, the race is on for Wally to make it to Space before it’s too late. Wally joins us to tell her incredible story: how she paved the way for women in Space, why there’s still a long way to go and how her dream of becoming an astronaut is about to become a reality.
WEDNESDAY 19TH JUNE
