A chance for LiU alumni to meet Fuglesang
The Swedish astronaut Christer Fuglesang is the big attraction at the alumni event on Saturday 12 June. Around 400 people are expected to gather at Malmen outside Linköping.
“The interest in attending has been amazing. Lots of people will be bringing their families”, says Kristina Lyngenberg who has coordinated the event.
The day also consists of lectures, exhibitions and of course plenty of opportunities for socialising with old and new friends.
Christer Fuglesang will be talking about his life as an astronaut and LiU professors Petter Krus and Patrick Docherty present the latest research in technology and aerospace. SAAB and Swedish Defence Research Agency are also taking part by exhibiting Sweden’s most advanced air simulators. The day concludes with a visit to the nearby and newly reopened Swedish Air Force Museum.
The event is a collaboration between Linköping University and the Twin Cities of Sweden organisation.
