Maggie Aderin-Pocock


Contact Maggie Aderin-Pocock via a Specialist Speakers agent on 01455 633289 for both in-person and virtual engagements.


Dame Margaret Ebunoluwa Aderin-Pocock DBE is one of Britain’s best known space scientists and the co-presenter of The Sky At Night. Maggie is also a prolific inventor and tinkerer, creating numerous bespoke scientific tools and instruments, including a hand-held landmine detector and optical work on the James Webb space telescope and the Gemini Observatory.

Maggie’s path to success is an inspiring story in itself. Coming from a working class background and brought up on council estates, she was diagnosed as dyslexic as a child and placed in the remedial class, bouncing between fourteen different schools. She went on to attain four A-levels, earned a BSc in Physics at UCL and a doctorate in mechanical engineering.

Beyond a career that has led her from the Ministry of Defence to the BBC Maggie has enjoyed two driving forces behind her work – bringing the science of space to the masses, and, inspiring the next generation of scientists. Her enthusiasm and sheer depth of knowledge have made her a hit with children and adults alike. Her company Science Innovation Ltd works to engage and share her passion for space and for science with people across the world.
