Our second podcast is out now! During the European Space Week in Tallinn we had the pleasure to talk to Dallas Kasaboski analyst at Northern Sky Research and talked with him about e.g. the European New Space market, funding mentality, differences between the USA and Europe and the earth observation market. We learned a lot and are sure you will get some insights from this episode! The podcast was recorded on the 9th November in Estonia.
The NewSpaceVision Podcast series focus on entrepreneurship in the field of NewSpace in Europe and abroad!
it´s Daniel here and I hope you all may love what I created within the last weeks. I created an awesome space songs playlist on Spotify which may inspire your work and may increase your productivity. Before you listen to the songs I want to show you why it does mean a lot to me and why space songs are awesome. With our young professional conference, we want to inspire more people to join space companies and startups in Europe. So, feel free to share this playlist to everyone who may be interested. This will attract more people to grow the industry. It is the inception method 😉 If you like what we are doing and if you love this playlist spend us one coffee or more via PayPal.
First of all, we are space enthusiasts. What does that mean? Space is not only our job, it is our passion since our childhood. We played a lot of space games, watched space movies, created awesome spaceships with LEGO and later studied space engineering or related topics. It´s true that I was Mr. Spock on carnival in Düsseldorf with Spocks ears, my own communicator and phaser. When your job is your passion and music is your passion than both things come together. I´m open for all music genres so you will find classic and Hip-Hop as well as Rock and various Electronic styles. I bet there a more songs you love than songs you don´t like. So just skip songs that may disrupt your inner balance. When I must deliver a lot of output I often hear one song on repeat to reach a mental state of holistic focus on the work. A lot high class performer discussed this topic (read here). You will find a lot of songs you can hear thousands of times in the playlist. I checked it 😉
Let me tell you a bit about some songs in the playlist:
When we go back to the first space age a lot of artists started creating awesome songs such as „space oddity (1969) in the year of the moon landing. And of course, you will find the theme song of star treks original series which started in 1966 and inspired generations of young engineers to work in the space industry. Seven years after the last man Eugene Cernan walked on the moon the song „Walking on the moon (1979)“ was published and now exists in a variety of versions. Another song I added is from Star Wars. I tell you it is a funny and awesome feeling when you are in the supermarket and the Star Wars imperial march starts playing in your headphones. But there are some funny songs in the list, too. If you want someone to learn the solar system in a funny way, just play „solar system (1977)“ by the beach boys.
We are talking a lot about asteroid mining today and already landed Philae after a long journey with Rosetta on comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. One movie which climax was landing on an asteroid to save humanity was Armageddon by Michael Bay in 1998. I added two songs of this movie which are „Leaving on a jet plane (1969)“ and of course „I don´t want to miss a thing“ which was the theme song of this movie. One year before Armageddon was in cinemas the prodigy published the song „Firestarter“ which is the perfect song for every rocket scientist (yes, the video is kind of crazy). One song I also really love while coding or engineering is „Out of space“ from the prodigy which was published in 1992 but sounds like it was just published. Yes, this video is also kind of crazy but there are rockets and a moon launch of Apollo in it.
Other songs you can find are „I´d love to change the world (2014)“ from the Star Trek Discovery Trailer or the well-known electro song „Sternenkinder (2011)“.
I also added a lot of songs published within the last months and years and added a few original NASA audios to the playlist. I´ll add new songs regularly. Of course, you can send us songs we should add by sending us an E-Mail to Daniel@newspace.Vision or by writing a comment here on the website. So, if you cannot wait just visit our playlist and do not forget to follow it on Spotify:

this time we stare to the moon. It has gotten a lot of attention in the last few days. Not only is moon dust the object of desire and was sold for 1.8$million but also the solid-gold model of a lunar module which has been stolen from the Neil Armstrong Museum in Wapakoneta, Ohio.
Nevertheless, these are objects with less monetary value if you compare the futuristic ambitions of states (Russia, Europe, China, USA, India, Japan) or companies (Space X, Google – GLXP, Blue Origin, PartTimeScientists, Astrobotic, Bigelow Aerospace) that are planning to visit the moon in the near future. What do they desire and what is their plan? A few answers gives this well researched and summarized article by Ersialia Vaudo Scarpetta, astrophysicist at ESA. Another article from TheConversation.com discusses the moon as a gas station and how we could use it. Wow, a lot of input in the beginning today …
Now let´s have a look on past moon related news.

The futuristic ambitions I have mentioned above need well tested techniques and technologies you have to rely on. That is why moonlike testbeds for robots are so important. ESA is testing a few robot iterations on Tenerifian soil. The Rover Autonomy Testbed (RAT) is part of ESA’s Lunar Scenario Concept Validation and Demonstration (LUCID) project and is led by the Spanish aerospace company GMV.
The DLR is doing research on how to use moon dust for future habitats. In an interview Prof. Matthias Sperl describes how printed regolith could look like and how far they have come with their work.

To place a lander and two rovers on the moon and establish a communication and transport infrastructure is the long term focus of the Berlin based PT Scientists. Robert Böhme and his team are now seeking for partners in the Middle East.
We are very happy to present our first podcast episode. This one focusses on the work of an emerging space venture capital fond. The insights and opinions from visionary Sebastian on the status and development of the space sector are very interesting and we think that there are numerous takeaways for entrepreneurs and new space visionaries!
The NewSpaceVision Podcast series gives an insightful perspective on entrepreneurship in the field of NewSpace in Europe and abroad!
