'To boldly go' (16 Oct 2012) by UCL Sound published on 2012/10/29 12:46:36 +0000 Lunch Hour Lectures - Autumn 2012 Dr Kevin Fong, Honorary Senior Lecturer in Physiology, UCL Faculty of Life Sciences In the 100 years since Scott's expedition to Antarctica, we have redefined the way we explore the physical world. Parallel advances in our understanding of the human body have allowed us to extend human exploration across the globe on into the endless frontier of space. But with the space shuttle fleet now in retirement, the question for this new century is what have we learnt and how should we continue 'to boldly go?' UCL is consistently ranked as one of the world's top universities. Across all disciplines our faculties are known for their research-intensive approaches, academic excellence and engagement with global challenges. This is the basis of our world-renowned degree programmes. Visit us at www.ucl.ac.uk.
