Extremes: Life, Death and The Limits of the Human Body - Dr Kevin Fong
Saturday Evening Lecture Series 2014 Dr Kevin Fong is a doctor of medicine with a special interest in human space exploration, extreme environment physiology, and holds separate degrees in astrophysics and engineering. He has specialised in anaesthesia, intensive care medicine, and has worked with NASA at both Johnson and Kennedy Space Centre. Kevin Fong’s broadcast career includes the acclaimed BBC TV documentaries To Boldly Go, Back from the Dead and How to Mend a Broken Heart; Channel 4’s series Extreme A&E, and features as a regular science presenter for BBC Radio. In this lecture, Dr Fong will be discussing his first book, Extremes, and how we have pushed the envelope of human survival over the past century, in the skies, in space, under the ocean and in intensive care wards and surgical theatres; and how human beings are compelled to explore both physical and physiological limits, often at terrible cost.
