Lecture: Discovering space with André Kuipers

Wednesday 22 May 2024, 12.45 - 14.00 uur

Dutch ESA-astronaut André Kuipers lived and worked for 204 days in the International Space Station. What is it like to live in space for such a long time? How did it change Kuipers’ worldview?

According to Kuipers we are in fact all astronauts, on a fragile spaceship, called Earth. What valuable insights does space travel provide us, so that we can take better care of our planet? And what will the future bring; sustainable rockets and a manned mission to Mars?

This lecture is organized in cooperation with Studium Generale and Space Society Twente.

Around 13.30h there will be a short break, followed by a O&A.
