Going Interstellar: Blue Sky, Green Skies, and Reclaiming our Space
"Going Interstellar: Blue Sky, Green Skies, and Reclaiming our Space"
The Inaugural Lecture from Professor Konstantinos Kontis
Monday 2 November 2015, Doors Open 6:00pm, Lecture 6:15pm
Sir Charles Wilson Building, 1 University Avenue, University of Glasgow
We are delighted to invite you to attend the inaugural lecture from Professor Konstantinos Kontis, Mechan Chair of Engineering and Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Glasgow, which will be held at the Sir Charles Wilson Lecture Theatre on Monday 2 November 2015 at 6pm.
Current research at the University of Glasgow will be highlighted, focussed on enabling future aerospace vehicles to be lighter and greener, and also to achieve optimal shape, performance, and system robustness throughout the flight envelope. Some thoughts will be given to current blue-sky technologies that may have a dramatic effect upon future aerospace designs, and how Nature can be a source of inspiration. The lecture will also emphasise research or engineering issues for space travel and exploration, and other aerospace issues such as ensuring a diverse and robust engineering community.
About the speaker
Professor Kostas Kontis is the Mechan Chair of Engineering, the Professor of Aerospace Engineering, and the Head of the Aerospace Sciences Research Division at the University of Glasgow.
Professor Kontis is internationally renowned for contributions in aerodynamics, flow control, shock-physics and diagnostics. He is a visiting professor in a number of organizations worldwide, as well as a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London, UK, and an Associated Fellow of AIAA, USA.
