In particular at that Forum, on Friday, 16 November, took place a special session related to space and hosted by ESA’s Chief Diversity Officer, Dr Ersilia Vaudo-Scarpetta on “A view from space: perspectives from explorers of the galaxy », with former astronauts and representatives from major space agencies over the world. This session was extremely well attended, demonstrating the interest of everyone in space, which is one of the ideas supported and defended by ESSC.
