4th Space Dinner – March 11, 2016 – Planetarium Brussels

The time has once again come for our annual flagship event: the Space Dinner! For the fourth time we invite you for a bite, a drink and inspiring presentations by influential speakers. It is the perfect opportunity to talk and network with like-minded people in a relaxed atmosphere!

In light of the recent announcement from ESA’s Director General, the theme of the 4th Space Dinner is the “Moon village”. In short, this village would be a lunar base, 3D printed from local materials and inhabited by astronauts for months at a time. Apart from acting as a research centre, it could also provide a springboard for future missions to Mars.

The following speakers will each provide their own point of view on this ambitious project:

  • Dr Marco Ferrazani, ESA Legal Counsel and Head of the Legal Department
  • Michel Melotte, radiation expert at Thales Alenia Space Belgium
  • Frederik De Wilde, multi- and transdisciplinary artist

Also included in the Space Dinner is a planetarium show and of course a free reception to top it all off.
