"In the 80s I was working highly fascinated at MTU Aero Engines and then till the mid 90s at DaimlerBenz Aerospace. My conversations with legendary space pioneer Ludwig Boelkow captivated me altogether for SpaceTech and SpaceTouch. Nowadays the NewSpaceTechies - from Germany (and all over the world) are all together determined to built a strong European spacetech innovation community. I wholeheartedly support you all and especially SpaceFounders."
