Sue Nelson is a British journalist and broadcaster, presenter of the Space Boffins podcast and a former BBC science correspondent. As well as writing, she produces radio documentaries, short films and is an experienced TV and radio reporter/presenter.

She has known Mercury 13 member, Wally Funk, since 1997. Wally Funk’s Race for Space, Sue’s latest book, covers their trips between 2016-17 and is an enjoyable ride through a history of women in space with someone who, after passing astronaut tests in 1960, could have been the first woman in space or even on the Moon. Wally’s race into space is not over…

Join Sue as she presents these experiences and Wally’s past (and future) at her talk titled: First Woman on the Moon.
