Contribution to human spaceflights: towards a better protection of astronauts for future human space exploration
2017 is a very special year for Belgium. The entire country celebrates its two famous Belgian astronauts Dirk Frimout and Frank de Winne, who flew to space 25, 15 and 10 years ago. The 25th anniversary fits in the World Space Week that is held from 4 till 10 October all over the world. This year’s theme is “Exploring New World in Space”.
We, SCK•CEN, would like to invite you on 6 October 2017 to celebrate this anniversary in presence of astronaut Frank de Winne. This day will be dedicated to the Belgian contribution to human spaceflights in view of future human space exploration. This is an unique opportunity for scientists, professionals and students to share experiences.
