Two interesting events coming up in Glasgow in October:

21st October - Talk from Dr James Goodfellow OBE inventor of the widely used Chip and PIN and the ATM.

29th October - Talk from
Stuart McIntyre, Prestwick Spaceport Consortium
Space travel. A new industry is taking shape – and Scotland has the opportunity to play a key role in it.
Stuart will cover the key points and outlines Prestwick’s many advantages, including its long runway which can take the biggest jets and the largest specialist freight planes. The airport was a frequent training location for Concorde crews.
Mr McIntyre will also highlight the significance of location, with Prestwick’s rail and motorway links and its nearness to Glasgow, which is rapidly developing as a centre of innovation for space.
