Chris Impey

Searching for Earth 2.0


“If it’s closer than 1 billion light years away then I don’t care.”

Award-winning astronomer, educator and author Chris Impey joined the AKQA team at the London office to discuss our past, present and future in space. Told from a lifelong pursuit of knowledge far beyond the earth’s horizon, Chris shared stories on: our inherent explorer gene, ‘Miss Baker’ the space mission squirrel monkey, his teachings at NASA, rocket launch failures from some of the world’s most prolific entrepreneurs and the very real prospect of discovering another planet earth. Chris signed copies of his new book Beyond: Our Future in Space after the talk.
