A Day in the Life of Richard Harrison MBE, Chief Scientist, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Space.

A Day in the Life of Richard Harrison MBE, Chief Scientist, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Space.

As well as managing the scientists at RAL Space, Richard Harrison is a researcher in solar physics and runs space missions.

In this video, he discusses the innovations made by RAL Space on a daily basis and talks about the fact that as a solar physicist, he can design his working day by programming the commands and observations he wants to make for the advancement of his research. This means that he gets the opportunity to see images not seen by anyone else in the world. He says that working at RAL Space is the UK equivalent of working for NASA.
