Hi! Yay, new forum!
Ditto on Brian cox, he would be a fantastic guest, he is a wonderful speaker!
However, personally I would love to meet any Apollo astronauts, the chance to meet these guys is the main reason I'm willing to fly to the uk for this event! I really hope another Apollo era astronaut is announced soon, it was very disappointing when Walt Cunningham cancelled, and while Al worden is an incredibly interesting guy and a wonderful guest, he was in the uk just last September.
Of the Apollo astronauts that realistically may come I would love to meet:

Charlie Duke (I'd love to meet Mr. Duke most of all!)
Gene Cernan
Fred Haise
Richard Gordon

And those who most likely will never come!
Mike Collins
Frank borman
John Young

Hopefully we might be lucky enough to get even one more Apollo veteran to come!??

Has Bob crippen been to the uk in recent years? I'd love to meet him. Chris hadfield was a real gentleman on his recent book tour, he drew a picture of the ISS in my copy of his book when he was explaining a question I had about the node!

Bob Crippen hasn't been to the UK, though we did ask him. I am told that he isn't too fond of the commute from the US! Understandable as this is the same reason many Apollo era astronauts can't attend as well.

We do however have Don Thomas on board now.

What other kinds of guests can we hope to meet? Physicists? Flight directors or controllers? Are there plans to have many further guests?

Anyone of interest really. But unless ticket sales pick up, no, there won't be any more guests this year. I was hoping for one more but we would need a big surge in ticket sales.

Haven't checked in here in a while! How are ticket sales going? Is there any view to getting any extra guests?

I think I mentioned it before but wouldn't brian cox be a fantastic guest? ... And I'd imagine he wouldn't be that difficult to get, he's such a huge space enthusiast already he might come if he gets a free ticket!

We won't be getting any more Apollo astronauts at this point, no. Ticket sales don't justify it sadly! We did extend an invitation to Prof. Cox but he is away filming at the time of the event!
