Imagine to understand the origin and evolution of our planet. Imagine to grasp the reasons behind the emergence of life on Earth and potentially elsewhere. Space exploration brings us the necessary information to turn these imaginations into realities. This information stimulates education as well as technological and business developments.
Among other disciplines, Space exploration is looking into the objects of the Solar System and their environments. In the last couple of centuries, astronomical observations were dedicated to these objects. Nowadays, the Solar System is reachable by manned and unmanned space flights. Space probes are delivering unprecedent knowledge from planets, moons and smaller bodies.
This website briefly presents, in simple words, my contributions to this vision and to the the field of planetary science.
