Skylab and me - the backstory

by Prof. Michael Whittle, MB, BS, BSc, MSc, PhD

My talk "Skylab (1973-4) - science and medicine in space" concentrates on the flights, the astronauts and the experiments. This complementary talk covers the personal side - how I came to work on the space program, and the many interesting and amusing aspects of living in Houston and working for NASA. The talk assumes no technical knowledge, and aims to be light hearted and amusing; it should be suitable for people of all ages.
