"Have passion in your hearts, but take your time." - Xi Jinping

After a long New Year’s break and with some delay, the latest issue of GoTaikonauts! is now published.

The cover story is on the Chang’e 5-T1 mission and its surprise piggy-back payload 4M. Two interviews with the leading managers of 4M, Dr. Fritz Merkle and Jochen Harms, are completing the cover article.

Also, the document features a lengthy report about the IAC2014 in Toronto in Canada and comprises two interviews with important actors within China’s efforts for international cooperation: Prof. Weng Jingnong and Chris Bee.

A report on ASE’s 27th Planetary Congress in Beijing including an interview with ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli and two very nice travel reports in the search for space in China are completing this issue.
