Bernard Henin science author
Bernard studied applied science in biotechnology but decided to find other life aspirations on different continents with businesses such as Amazon.com and humanitarian organisations in Africa.
“I have decided to share my passion for space science with the general public. In doing so, I write books for Springer International and get to spend months researching a chosen topic and interviewing leading scientists at space agencies and universities worldwide. I am a recurrent panellist on the Space Oddities YouTube channel.”
Having lived in Brussels, Houston and Hong Kong home, Bernard currently resides in Wiltshire.
The subject of this talk will be The James Webb Space Telescope
Remember we keep in touch through a Google Group, email news list, and Zoom.
