I’ll be talking about how Europe might get more citizen investment in space exploration at the European Space Agency’s headquarters in Paris, on Wednesday 15th June at 11:30am

ESA: 8-10 Rue Mario Nikis, 75015 Paris.

Without wanting to give the game away, I can tell you that it won’t involve making a fetish out of flying, or The Right Stuff; it won’t celebrate the off-world ambitions of a Robert Zubrin or an Elon Musk; and it won’t envisage star ships carrying sleeping humans to seed new worlds in far off galaxies. It will involve touchy feely space exploration, social media communities, crowd-sourced science, and eco-minded mission goals.
