Is there anything you wanted to know about the real world of space but were too afraid to ask? Now is your chance – come to the ESA panel Ask the Crew at FedCon to ask the real engineers of the Europe’s mission control your questions about what life is actually like flying spacecraft for the European Space Agency.
During the panel you’ll get to quiz six engineers from ESA’s European Space Operations Centre on any topic you want! You can find out everything from what it’s like to orbit Mars to how we dodge space junk or even just what sci-fi the team loves! Ask how mission control makes our missions successful and find out what makes us different from a starship bridge (hint: there are a lot more meetings!). It will be a completely open session so you are in the driving seat… come along and learn why really flying in space can be as weird and wonderful as any science fiction!
