Space can also be an important factor in the green deal, the digitalization of society, and in our response to climate change.
In addition, space travel can also improve mobility. We are all stuck in traffic jams, so, sooner or later, road user charges will become a fact. They will be calculated with the help of telephone masts and 5G, but also with satellite data. So you need space infrastructure to manage this effectively.
Another example of the social importance is forest management. Using Earth observation data, we can see where forests are disappearing and where they are being added.”
