Where – Mission Control
Dallas is a TV presenter who has filmed in some of the most extraordinary & challenging locations all over the world: sewer diving in Mexico City, abseiling off the world’s tallest building in Dubai, exploring secret chambers in Egypt’s Great Pyramid, filming rocket launches to the International Space Station in Kazakhstan and diving for lost Spanish treasure off the coast of Cuba. It’s a long list.
He has presented several out of this world projects including Voyager: Beyond the Final Frontier - the story of NASA’s epic interplanetary missions to explore the outer solar system & beyond, and The Drake Equation: The Search for Life - about the history of our efforts to find life beyond the earth, as well as helping Dara O’Briain & Brian Cox broadcast Tim Peake’s historic live launch to the International Space Station on Stargazing Live. His latest series is BBC2’s City in the Sky – an in depth look at the global aviation industry.
Dallas will be hosting two talks during the festival: All About Mars, a fascinating focus on the red planet and The Story of the Spacesuit, from humble post-war beginnings to cutting-edge technology that will sustain future astronauts in the far reaches of the cosmos.
