Join Dr. Christian Klösch, historian and curator of the space collection at the Vienna Museum of Technology, and our host Judith Delany for this edition of Space Cafè Austria for a unique insight not just in Austrian space history, but the importance of history in general. In this episode we will talk about what makes an object an object of historic value, how it can inspire the youth and what should be done to preserve it.
Spacejunk or a museum object? – How important is our shared space history?
Dr. Christian Klösch studied Astronomy, History and Philosophy at the University of Graz. He received his doctorate in History from the University of Vienna. He has been with the Vienna Museum of Technology (TMW) since 2009. The space department has grown significantly under his guidance and has led to a new space exhibition at the TMW that opened recently with great press and public feedback. Christian’s passion does not only lie with remembering the past but with inspiring the future generation.
