  1. Very interesting, thanks for the information !!
    I always wished for more international partnerships and more collaborations to explore, learn, understand, DEVELOPE !
    Thanks ESA.

  2. some questions asked were really "lazy"….you get the general manager and the best you come up with is "how important is exploration?"…cmon.

    oh, and what was that at the end? do you not coordinate with everyone else at the site when what is going on? like turning on these jet engines should better not be done while ppl are holding sessions, no?

    tbh, i expect better from an organisation like ESA.
