What if I don’t want to present?

The whole event is planned to be streamed to YouTube LIVE

It is the mission of R&R Space to push the boundaries of space technology and innovation by engaging people and ideas. We achieve this through new and exciting concept events and training. It is our aim to inspire a new wave of entrepreneurs and space explorers by unlocking their potential and linking them with new skills to build the future of space. R&R Space is founded by two space enthusiasts and aspiring entrepreneurs, Ryan Laird (@rjmlaird) and Ryan Bradley-Evans (@astro_ryanbe) who share a common vision of humanity’s place in space.

R&R Space are the organisers of SpaceUp Leicester. They use SpaceUp as a means to start the discussion around the topic of space, building a sense of community and a hub in the region for this growing industry. The aim is to spark some creative ideas that could lead on to future projects and activities in the region and beyond.
