The latest issue of the GoTaikonauts! newsletter - issue no 17 - was just published. The ipad app version is online and the pdf is available by e-mail request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
This issue is focusing on the aspect of European cooperation with China. The cover story is on a comparative study in space physiology by Belgian Prof. André Aubert. Prof. Aubert found some interesting differences between European and Chinese astronauts. Kris Liebaut is another Belgian who worked for six years as Foreign Expert in China. Both shared their insights and observations with us.
Apart from the Quarterly Report on Chinese space activities in the third quarter of 2015 you will also find a report on the 10th UK-China Workshop on Space Science Technology. The report is accompanied by an interview with Prof. Richard Holdaway, the driving force of this bilateral collaboration.
In our section “Book Review”, we are giving an overview on the recent European Space Policy Institute ESPI publication “When China goes to the Moon…” by Marco Aliberti. Additionally, the author gave us in an interview interesting background information on his work for the book, while the Director of ESPI, Peter Hulsroj, explains the Institute’s mission.
A photo gallery of China's CZ-6 first launch is completing the latest issue of our newsletter.
The GoTaikonauts! team wishes to thank all persons who were willing to grant us an interview or contributed in any form to the content of this issue.
Enjoy reading!
