This month, the ESPI Perspectives discuss solutions to the European launcher crisis. Director Hermann Ludwig Moeller advocates for a dual strategy, considering the access to space together with the use of space, to be able to attract the required private investments. Europe’s space ambitions in security & defence, exploration and the commercial use of space need to be part of the solution towards economically sustainable commercial launchers.
