Europe’s Future Spaceflight Programme: Current Planning and Future Options

This looks like a very good event, indeed, with Thomas Reiter, who is Director of ESA’s new Directorate of Human Spaceflight and Operations (D/HSO), responsible for managing Europe’s contribution to the International Space Station, ESA’s human spaceflight activities, the operations of ESA’s missions and management of the corresponding ground segments (and who will also be speaking on the roundtable on my event on “Human Spaceflight After the Shuttle”). It is free, though pre-registration is necessary, at the Royal Aernautical Society on Monday the 19th of September.
