The development of nano-electronics, ultra-sensitive sensors, super-strong materials and structures, new ways to efficiently gather and use energy: for spaceflight these are necessary, and we benefit from them here on Earth. The issues that so strongly affect us here on Earth, from the air we breathe to the car we drive to the food we eat are similar to those addressed by technology in space.
Whether its an instrument onboard a space platform or a person aboard a space station, the technology invented to provide a safe environment, a trajectory and fuel is simply an advanced solution to the same problems we come across on Earth. Because of these similarities, advances in space technology provide new possibilities on Earth. The
specializes in scientific instrumentation, satellite components, propulsion, and other developments that drive technology here on Earth into the future. Netherlands
