The Gateway to Space

I was asked to give a talk on the future at Goonhilly Earth Station by Superfast Broadband Cornwall and here are a few clips.

The high point of the day for me, was a tour of the facility and it's control room, controlling a selection of communications satellites whizzing around in earth orbit, hundred of miles above me.

I was equally impressed by the length and quality of the local Cornish beards on display and have been inspired to grow one of my own over the Xmas holiday!

Thanks for the great hospitality and a fascinating day.
