MRATHS Talk | 8th May 2019
We welcome MRATHS back to Malvern College with their exciting talk on Pyroelectric Vidicon Thermal Imaging.
How Malvern helped relaunch the Space Shuttle – Brian Harper
Date: Wednesday 8th May 2019
Location: The Lewis Lecture Theatre, Malvern College, College Road, Malvern WR14 3DF.
Description: The story of how Pyroelectric Vidicon Thermal Imaging, initially developed at RSRE and continued at Insight Vision Systems, was the only technology adaptable to detect a hydrogen fire close up on the Kennedy Space Centre launch pad for the ‘Return to Space’ of the Shuttle after the Columbia disaster. A warts and all account.
