Discovery on its way!

And… we have lift-off!

The last days, a lot of focus in Sweden has been on our first-ever astronaut, Christer Fuglesang, who, two days delayed, blasted off from Kenedy Space Center early this morning on a twelve day mission to the International Space Station. As some of you know, I have myself been doing some research on space policy and also vigorously advocated space industrialization as a strategy for achieving environmental sustainability.

With Christer on his way I can only hope that this will lift our spirits and increase public understanding in Sweden about the importance of further space missions.
