Star Wars? Oorlog en conflicten in de ruimte.
Conflicten in de ruimte, is dat echt iets voor a long time ago in a galaxy far away? Wie aan oorlog in de ruimte denkt, denkt misschien aan rondvliegende laserstralen en vijandige aliens, maar oorlog is wel degelijk nu al een factor in outer space. Denk maar hoe de Koude Oorlog de space race op gang bracht, maar omgekeerd maken steeds geavanceerdere ruimtetechnologieën ook steeds nieuwe wapens mogelijk. En welke rol spelen bijvoorbeeld satellieten in de Russische invasie in Oekraïne?
Aspirant ruimtevaarder Hetty Helsmoortel gaat in gesprek met ruimtevaartingenieur Stijn Ilsen en ruimtejurist Ward Munters om een beeld te krijgen van conflicten in de ruimte. Wel Science, geen Fiction.
Waar?: Bar Space
Wanneer?: maandag 19/9, om 19.00 uur (deuren open om 18.30 uur)
Prijs: €14 – Je betaalt de toegang voor de tentoonstelling die je na afloop van het debat exclusief en achter gesloten deuren kunt bezoeken.
Gazet van Antwerpen: Een tripje Antwerpen - heelal met raket SpaceBuzz? Binnenkort kan het: “Magie van ruimte gebruiken om van aarde mooiere plek te maken”
“People have often called me crazy, but I have long since passed the stage where I care,” laughs Jürgen Ingels. The serial entrepreneur and investor - after his hours - set up the largest space exhibition in Europe and poured the most remarkable astronaut stories into a book. According to Ingels, this passion for space travel is less far-fetched than it seems at first sight. President Kennedy said in 1962, 'We choose to go to the moon. Not because it is easy, but because it is hard.' That is exactly what entrepreneurs do: choose the path with the greatest impact, even if it is often the most difficult one.”
Will we soon be living on Mars, do aliens really exist, and will we soon know how the cosmos was created? Kobe Ilsen found out during '#weetikveel on tour' at the Space Expo in Antwerp. Nancy Vermeulen, Katrien Kolenbergs and Stijn Meuris were the guests.
One of the twelve people who ever stood on the moon - and one of the four who are still alive - is in our country: the American Charlie Duke. Fifty years ago, it was he who flew to the moon with Apollo 16. An experience that still humbles him, he says.

Fifty years ago, American astronaut Charles Duke landed on the moon with the sixteenth Apollo mission. On Tuesday, he set foot in Antwerp as a special guest at Space, a real-life exhibition about space travel in Antwerp Expo. Organizer Jürgen Ingels showed him around. A unique moment, because of the twelve astronauts who once walked on the moon, only four are still alive.

At the moment you can visit 'SPACE - The Human Quest' at the Antwerp Expo, a unique exhibition for all ages that takes you into the adventurous world of space travel. On 17 May, space engineer Stijn Ilsen will be our guest at the expo to talk about his passion.
You can touch a lunar meteorite and sit in a perfectly simulated lunar lander. Just over 50 years after Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon, Space: The Human Quest in Antwerp looks back and ahead with fun items and stories, but especially with impressively recreated spacecraft.
Space fans can indulge themselves in Antwerp Expo until 30 June for the exhibition Space - The Human Quest. You will find life-size replicas of rockets, lunar landers and even the Space Shuttle. Most replicas were made by the American space agency NASA, but attention is also paid to Antwerp's contribution to space travel.
