What child, teenager and even adult has never looked at the sky after reading two of Tintin’s most famous comics: Objectif Lune and We Walked on the Moon? It is inevitable that the sky, the stars, the planets make you dream.
But behind the dream, above all, the conquest of space hides the most beautiful achievements of man. All scientific and technological advancements are united in the same thirst for progress and discovery.
Today, more than ever in history, our world faces a major threat that puts humanity at risk: climate change. Putting science at the service of a cause like this is a fundamental step forward. This is also the first message from the new Belgian astronaut Raphaël Liégeois: “I am convinced that science is a starting point for solving the world’s problems. »
How not to agree with him? Because let’s not lose sight of the fact that the formidable epics in space have knowledge, research, knowledge as their primary and ultimate goal.
Of course one can dream to always go further. The International Space Station, the Moon and even Mars.
Nothing is impossible. We dare to bet that our first Waal with his head in the stars will also contribute, together with the other European astronauts, to great progress.
After all, “the sky is the limit”.
