Tim Marshall Visits the Vaughan

On Monday 5 February, we had the pleasure of welcoming author, journalist and broadcaster Tim Marshall to speak to our Sixth Form about the exciting future of Astropolitics and his new book, The Future of Geography. Intersecting a wide range of subjects, Mr Marshall delivered an insightful and fascinating talk about how what happens in space is an extension of the geopolitics of our own planet, and will, in turn, have consequences for us down here on Earth. 

Speaking about the visit, Aodhan B, Upper Sixth, commented: "The talk by Mr Marshall provided an in-depth analysis as to why there is such an eagerness to explore and conquer space, and the implications it has on Earth now and in the future. Marshall also explored how even thousands of years ago, people were fascinated by space, showing how their desire to explore space led us to where we are today."

Isabella R-S, Upper Sixth, added: "The talk was insightful and explored a new perspective of geography outside the curriculum which I thoroughly enjoyed, and captivated an image of the future of geography in space and its rising importance in today's political landscape."

We are incredibly grateful to Mr Marshall for coming to the Vaughan and inspiring us all.
