For the adventurers: this is a part of the #WonderWomen event from Imperial College London to celebrate International Women' Day, and we have reserved a few tickets for our members.
On the night, please arrive 10 minutes before the event to secure your seat.
I will be at Imperial but in a separate event, I encourage you ladies to use the discussion below to organise to meet up for some drinks or see other events for the evening at Imperial.
Details of the talk:
What does it feel like to be at the top of Mount Everest? How can you achieve the impossible?
Melanie Windridge is a physicist, speaker, writer… with a taste for adventure.
She has travelled the world, worked in fashion, gained a doctorate in fusion energy, made inventions for technology companies, appeared on TV, climbed mountains and written books. She works for Tokamak Energy, a fusion start-up working towards commercial fusion power. She has skied out across Arctic Svalbard to see the northern lights. She has climbed Everest to highlight the science that makes it safer.
Following Melanie’s journey from childhood to the present day, we find out how Melanie has built a career around her two passions of science and adventure, and how she has come to recognise that the common theme in the elements of her career is the notion of achieving the “impossible”.
