ESA!

Best day ever! Visiting ESA ESTEC – The European Space Agency´s technical head-quarters here in Holland. Two full days of inspiration and information. Together with Mr Bernard Foing. Father of SMART-1, a real-life rocket scientist! and executive director of ESAs international Lunar Exploration Group. This is AMAZING!

Our group-photo in front of the ESA space-station module. People connected to the SPACE-project, this year most of them/us are working with the GSO Moon Village opera. Norway, Belgium, Netherlands, Wales, Ireland, Portugal are represented.

A copy of the international space station. In real life it´s the size of a football field.

Bernard posing in front of the moon-mobile. A very practical vehicle that can be steered from earth if necessary. Or, at the push of a button will take the astronaut back to the station.

And this is part of the filed for trying out technical vehicles.

The actual discovery-center, where they test out and invent.

A grain of sand, only a millimeter, can cause sever damage to metal, when it comes at a speed of 20 km per second, as you can see below.

Solar panels can be so beautiful! Like this Studio 54 disco-version 😉

The plans for how the permanent space station on the moon will look like. This is a 3D printed small-scale copy.

To prevent damage from astroids, the walls will be covered in 1-2 meter thick porous  3D printed material, almost like a sponge, filled with sand (or water!) to soften any blows on the outside.

More tomorrow!

    How interesting! The grain of sand is a mighty force. But I love the idea of pushing a button and having my vehicle take me home. No more tired drives back to the house, lol. 🙂
