To Mars together: 5 reasons to explore the red planet | Yulia Akisheva | TEDxISAESUPAERO
From far Eastern Russia to south of France through Sweden, Yulia has already discovered many facets of our world. Studying aerospace engineering, she is now aiming for a far more distant target : Mars. And she knows that it won't be reached if we, as a species, don't cooperate more than ever before. During this talk, Yulia gives us 5 good reasons to go to the red planet TOGETHER.
Make yourself comfortable, the take-off is imminent. Yulia,Born in 1994, is passionate about Space and particulary the conquest of Mars. As she says it by herself : "I am now at the beginning of my career but believe me if I tell you that it has already been a long bumpy space journey, exactly 10804 km of aspirations, limitations, dreams, failures and successes.
My Martian roots stretch back to Khabarovsk a Far Eastern city in Russia so far from the space industry, I hid my space dream deep enough that not a single person knew of my passion until 18 years later, already in Stockholm, Sweden, after I had applied exclusively for Aerospace Engineering at KTH. Having evolved from someone who had once buried her dream to somebody who dug it back up half way around the globe and whom friends call “the Mars girl” today." This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://www.ted.com/tedx
