Pat Norris, the author of Returning People to the Moon after Apollo (2019) as well as Spies In The Sky (2007) and Watching Earth from Space (2010) regularly lectures on the subjects covered in his books.  As July 2019 was the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission his recent talks have focused on Moon landings (on which he worked in Houston from 1967 to 1970). 

A description of his work on Apollo 11 and a video interview in which he describes his Apollo experience were published by The Irish Times on July 13, 2019 - see Pat Norris and Apollo

Having lectured extensively in Britain and Ireland on the Moon landings in 2019, he is expecting to give a number of lectures across Europe in 2020 - details will be added here when available.

He has contributed two chapters to the Handbook of Space Security published in 2015 and again in 2019 by Springer and edited by K-U Schrogl, et al.  One chapter covers "Eavesdropping from Space" and includes information released by whistle-blower Edward Snowden.  The other chapter covers "USA Military Space Programs". Both of these chapters form the basis for lectures that have been (and continue to be) presented at various Branches of the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS).

Recently Pat has focused on lecturing to school children.  For those in Primary School he uses space to enthuse young children about taking up the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).  In High Schools or Secondary Schools he shows how space can be an exciting career and provides advice on the courses to take.

Watch this space for future speaking dates.
