Robin Brand's talk on the Skylark, when science fiction came true and Britain went into space for the first time, although unmanned, in November 1957. The Skylark became the basis of Britain’s earliest space programme. Hundreds were fired, launching into space thousands of scientific instruments. Many of these carried out pioneering astronomical observations in the X-ray and UV spectrum, regions previously unavailable to British scientists.
