“The space industry is one of today’s most powerful technology innovation drivers. New programmes such as space missions to Mars and the moon push the boundaries of technology development. […] Advanced space technologies have already provided intelligent solutions in our everyday lives, such as the air bag, the Antilock Braking System (ABS) and satellite navigation devices. Yet the public and industry are almost unaware of the opportunities readily available from many decades of aerospace research and developments, and ripe for exploration.” (ESA, 2008)
