SpaceWatch.Global is pleased to present: The Space Cafe Podcast #053: ESA director Géraldine Naja on the commercialization of ESA, the Russian absence, and why ESA might just be waiting for your job application.

Episode 053 features a special guest: Géraldine Naja.

The European Space Agency (ESA) has set sail to begin commercial operations. But what does that mean? Brand new director Géraldine Naja sat down with Markus in the new episode to shed light on the new direction – and more. Also in the episode: how much the Russians are really missing, where ESA still has some room to grow in terms of communications, what it takes to make an ESA Director cry, and why being exclusively a math or physics genius isn’t always mandatory to get a job at ESA. 

The Space Cafe Podcast brings our signature brand of engaging and relevant content from across the global space economy to you via an exciting new format. Together with award-winning Executive Producer, Markus Mooslechner (Terra Mater Factual Studios), our fortnightly podcast features highly interesting guests.
