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:

The Berlin based NewSpace StartUp PTScientists are working hard on the first private mission to the moon.

At their open-door day on the 1st of April you have the chance to visit their new headquarter and have a look at their labs, office rooms, test facilities and their moon test field. Of course ALINA (the moon lander) and the Audi lunar quatro (the moon rover) will be there in action. If you have questions about their mission, which is planned for 2018, you have the chance to ask the members of the team!

Don’t miss this chance to get a real insight look into the place where „Hell yeah it’s rocket science!“  is not only a slogan.

NewSpace in Germany: Planet‘s Berlin Office presents its activities

Tom Segert is one of the most prominent and inspiring personalities in the German space sector. He co-founded the company Berlin Space Technologies and uses an agile and innovative approach to develope and build satellites. Under the title New Space in Germany he already published several articles on his LinkedIn page, you can find the whole series here, Kindly we are able to republish some of this articles on newspace.vision. Enjoy!

A view forward – A view back.

Many things are moving in Berlin. A number of initiatives towards NewSpace have been kicked-off in the last year. One of them NewSpace Vision is an active player organising a series of meetings with top speakers from key players of the industry. NewSpace Vision (www.newspace.vision) has been founded by Sven Przywarra and is co-organised by Daniel Seidel. Both Sven and Daniel are good friends and very active in their vision to make Berlin the leading NewSpace Hub in Germany.

If you are in Berlin I encourage you to visit their meetings or if you have an interesting company active in NewSpace make contacts, the guys are happy to give you a forum to present the awesome things that you are doing.

Planet in Berlin

Yesterdays Highlight was the visit of Mr. Vitale head of Planet’s Berlin office. Planet has an office in Berlin since they have acquired the RapidEye Constellation from Blackbridge in 2015. The presentation in the usual Planet splendour focused on the vision to image the whole world every day and by this create actionable information. What I found interesting is that each of the Doves have today a 100Mbit/s X-Band transmitter which downloads data to 26 receiving stations all over the world. This is a pretty impressive feature for such a small satellite and the whole constellation. As commercial feasibility is always dependent on how many pixels you can download this potentially increases profitability.
