IAF-ASE Astronaut Event

Wednesday 3 October 2018, 15:00 – 16:00

Location: Bremen Conference Center – ÖVB Arena

 

New Space also means that the astronaut profession undergoes changes and new astronauts’ stories are being told. On stage in Bremen astronauts from all over the world will share their views on their unique professional careers with the audience. Can we really go to Moon and Mars faster, better? What role does safety play in private space missions? Are the international crews on ISS a role model for future spaceflights? Tag up with people who have the combined experience of years in space in a fleet of spacecraft vehicles!
