This year’s IET Young Professionals' Event 2016 was presented by Kristen Facciol from the Canadarm team at the Canadian Space Agency and Abbie Hutty from the ExoMars Rover Vehicle Team at Airbus Defence and Space.

The audience were enraptured by how these prolific young aerospace engineers brought sci-fi to reality with their amazing space robots in an intergalactic space-like atmosphere.

The audience heard about the great potential of robotics and automation in space explorations and how they will continue to contribute to our understanding of the universe. The event was followed by drinks, a light dinner and ample networking time.
