Space: The Final Heritage Frontier
Lecture by Dr Bryan Lintott, Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge
13th December 2018 – 18:30-20:30
The United Kingdom’s Space heritage extends to Mars, where the ‘Beagle 2’ lander rests on the surface of the red planet. It is one of many objects sent beyond the Earth, either with humans onboard or as robotic explorers. Theoretical academic interest in these objects and their associated sites has been transformed in recent years by the Google Lunar XPRIZE and current plans for humans to return to the Moon. Based on the history of heritage conservation in Antarctica, the lecture will consider options for the governance, management and in-situ conservation of Space heritage. In conclusion, the roles that the United Kingdom and ICOMOS could have in developing the conservation of Space heritage will be discussed.
