European space exploration: strategic considerations of human versus robotic exploration
A new report by the European Academies Science Advisory Council (EASAC) underlines the importance of European space research.
Further explorations are necessary for a better understanding of life in the solar system and beyond, but also for economic and social benefits. In this context, reflections on manned and unmanned space travel are presented. The report was produced under the direction of Thierry Courvoisier, astrophysicist at the University of Geneva and President of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences. EASAC is the association of national science academies in the EU Member States and includes Switzerland.
