From the Editor
Just how far can a Leeds education take you? One particular answer might be: roughly 250 miles above the city. This issue, we check in with Matthias Maurer, the second Leeds alum to have embarked on a mission to the International Space Station.
Back on planet Earth, and rather closer to campus, we spend time with members of our community changing people’s lives in two different fields – increasing social mobility and transforming palliative care.
We also catch up with alumni whose journeys have gone in wildly diverse directions – whether to international influence in literature or social entrepreneurship; the tops of mountains or the Hollywood hills – but which began here.
Leeds is, to paraphrase a well-known TV programme, an adventure in time as well as space: we revisit our experiences as students while helping shape future generations of alumni; our research builds on our past and changes the future. Through the links to our features below, you'll find many examples.
I hope you enjoy the ride!
