Today, 23rd July, Kathy Sullivan will join broadcaster Pat Kenny for an exclusive Irish interview which will be broadcast live on the Marine Institute’s Facebook page, Twitter account and YouTube Channel. Kathy Sullivan, an astronaut, oceanographer, explorer and author is the first person to ever experience travelling to both deep space and the oceans deep. Kathy will share her remarkable history-making story, offering unique insights into her exploration at the extreme frontiers, recalling the experiences of walking in space and charting oceans.
Kathy Sullivan, who has Irish roots, was the first American woman to walk in space in 1984, and at 68-years of age, she made history again just last month. On June 6, the oceanographer and former NASA astronaut became the first woman to reach Challenger Deep, the deepest known location in the ocean. At 35,810-foot deep, the dive now makes Sullivan the first person to both walk in space and descend to the deepest point in the ocean.
Kathy Sullivan in Conversation with broadcaster Pat Kenny is being brought to you as part of the Marine Institute’s Oceans of Learning series, which aims to remind everyone of the major role the ocean has on our everyday lives and to inspire a new generation of ocean champions.
