On Wednesday, October 18, the President of the HSC, Prof. Ioannis Daglis, participated in the press conference held for the LIFE IN SPACE exhibition, which is organised by the European Space Agency (ESA), the U.S. Space & Rocket Center and its Space Camp, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the Italian Space Agency (ASI).
Prof. Daglis underlined that “the ability to cross the limits of the atmosphere has given us a virgin space of technological and economic development. In addition, Space, as an Earth observation platform, enables us to frequently inspect large areas of the Earth, to better understand man-made problems and space threats, such as asteroids, and to effectively protecting our planet“. Additionally, he mentioned that very soon the design of the first national fleet of microsatellites will be completed, “a very important step for the country, which will give us a strategic advantage by owning our space infrastructure“.
The exhibition is hosted at the Goudi Olympic Center, from October 19, 2023, until January 15, 2024, with a ticket purchase required for entrance.
