SpaceWatch.Global is pleased to present the 52nd episode in our podcast series The Space Cafe Podcast #052: René Laufer, a life between science and fiction

Episode 052 features a special guest: Rene Laufer.

Rene Laufer is Professor and Head of the Space Systems Group, Chair at the Luleå University of Technology in Kiruna, North Sweden and is a respected expert on all matters relating to small satellites and lunar exploration. But he has a secret passion for science fiction, from which he draws many inspirations for his scientific work. This episode is dedicated to all those who want to go a little beyond the well-known new space news diet and get inspired by the event horizon between science fiction and science fact.

Together with award-winning Executive Producer, Markus Mooslechner (Terra Mater Factual Studios), our fortnightly podcast features highly interesting guests.
