NewSpaceVision #8: CloudEO (Event following the INNOspace Masters)

When: 17.05.2017, 19:00 – 22:00
Where: Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics at TU Berlin, Marchstraße 12-14, 10587 Berlin 

Dear NewSpaceVisionaries,

On the 17th of May we will be able to welcome the CEO of CloudEO Dr. Manfred Krischke!

CloudEO is one of the most interesting companies on the german earth observation market. Their unique software  and market place helps companies to understand and analyse earth observation data more easily. They provide a worldwide and vendor-independent GeoMarketplace, simplifying the geobusiness for customers and partners. These services include solutions for many industries from agriculture to urban planning as well as multi-purpose remote sensing imagery, elevation data and thematic maps.

The Final of the INNOSpace Masters will take place in Berlin on the same day and we thought that would be the perfect occasion for our next NewSpaceVision event.

If you are a visitor of the INNOSpaceMasters Final: The INNOSpace Masters will end at 16.30 so there is plenty of time to come to the TU Berlin and close the day with an interesting talk about downstream applications of earth observation, a topic which is not really covered at the masters.

• If you want to support our MeetUp you are invited to do so by donating a free amount on this eventbrite page: Eventbrite.

• We wrote a small piece on the status of the german new space sectorhave a look and tell us what you think. Follow us on facebook and twitter and feel free to tell your friends and colleagues about NewSpaceVision.

See you at the event!

Regards,

Sven & Daniel

 




Impressions from NewSpaceVision #7: PtScientists Labvisit

Dear NewSpaceVisionaries,

the open door event at PtScientists had more than 150 visitors. A lot of people were impressed that a private mission to the moon is developed in Berlin. It made us happy to see that the future of the space industry is backed up by a lot of young kids. They loved the moon rover „Audi Lunar Quattro“ and the moon lander „Alina„. It was a well mixed audience and we enjoyed the participation of specialists as well as families.

Very good insight presentations and a lot of guided tours with founders of the company made it a successfull event for everyone. The highlight was the possibility for everyone to control the Audi lunar quattro with a tablet device. Therefore the PtScientists have a small area to simulate moin soil. With a lot of technical questions from the audience you could get information you will not find in the internet.

Visiting the office rooms of a private space company is the opposite of boring. You have to check out the pictures to see one of my favorite working desks I have ever seen. Imagine that you can have this all day long when you work for a space company. Even for all of you who have a favour for gold – space is the place for you to be. 🙂

Hell yeah it´s rocket science!“

We love to see you at our next event which we will announce soon.

Now enjoy the impressions:

European Astronaut Centre with German Astronaut Gerhard Thiele 01/2017

Dear NewSpace Visionaries,

what is it like to be an astronaut and what skills do you need? Those questions are in my head since I was a little child. With the opportunity to visit the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne I got a few answers from a person that was closer to the final frontier, the German Astronaut Gerhard Thiele. First of all, it´s the third German astronaut (Jähn, Ewald) I talked to and I can say for sure, astronauts are awesome. A little bit like superheros. But to be a superhero they have to train for years. They get lessons in engineering, medicine, biology, public relations, flying a sojus and so on. That´s the reason they are in facilities like the EAC in cologne. But what the hell am I talking about this in NewSpaceVision? Just think about an imaginary Astronaut Centre in twenty to thirty years. Maybe it looks a little bit like this with NASA, ESA and yes… a NewSpace company.
