Not many people know but Luxembourg is a very far ahead with the legislation for space exploration. Last year I attended a very interesting evening with people from

 

1. NASA

2. SES

3. Air Liquide
4. ESA

 

It was very cool to see experts in the field discussing the future of space exploration. What made my jaw drop is what the guy from Air Liquide said when it comes to our ability to conquer space. He stated that at this point in time we rely too much on resources from our planet. We need to be able to make do with items we find on the moon and potentially other planets. He also stated that Air Liquide has developed the means to use lunar ice to fuel rockets :). Splitting water from Oxygen on the moon would make rockets carry different proportions of fuel to crew/equipment. At this point in time its mainly fuel. 

 

After this amazing evening with people knowing their s**t, we had a nice Apollo 11 screening!
