  1. Thanks to the BBC London, the most important question has been said. Let's hope that international space cooperation will keep on including Russian cosmonauts.

  2. So excited to see what the future holds. It was a very interesting and fun conversation! I hope these astronauts all get a chance to go to the moon. Esa is doing an incredible job to realize this giant project! Thanks to the whole team and GodSpeed ​​! Go ESA ❤

  3. What a nice and energetic meeting. Thanks for sharing.
    Thoughts: It is very important to cooperate with our usual allies, Canada, USA, Japan, etc.
    Considered the limited funding to esa relative to Europes size, how about being brave and shave off some consideral costs in relation to manned space programs. The saved funding should then be dericted into robotic space exploration and other fields we do want to master better. Eg. cheap access to space, communication, surveillance, etc. Humans are extreamly vulnerably and expensive in space.
