Giovedi 21 ottobre si riuniranno a Bruxelles i Ministri responsabili dei 29 stati membri dell’ESA e dei 27 paesi dell’Unione Europea per discutere della nuova “Vision for Space Exploration” e dei prossimi obiettivi che l’ESA vuole raggiungere.

Sarà questo il secondo grande meeting ministeriale sull’argomento, dopo che i lavori vennero iniziati lo scorso anno durante l’incontro di Praga.

La discussione verterà sui temi riguardanti le nuove tecnologie per l’accesso allo spazio, le infrastrutture in LEO (Low Earth Orbits), l’esplorazione umana e robotica del sistema solare, la discussione sui programmi delle altre Agenzie Spaziali e le opportunità di cooperazione.

Appassionato di astronautica fin da bambino, gli studi ed il lavoro mi hanno tenuto occupato nel settore chimico industriale fino al 2011 quando ho deciso di cambiare completamente vita e dedicarmi alla campagna. Collaboro felicemente con AstronautiNEWS dalla sua fondazione con una pausa sabbatica tra il 2011 ed il 2013.
