The ‘Ready for the Moon’ conference will dig deeper into the recommendations from the Revolution Space report. Austria’s Federal Chancellor Karl Nehammer, ESA Director General Josef Aschbacher and representatives from Europe’s space sector will explore how decisions taken now could affect Europe’s ability to participate in the growing space infrastructure.
