Meet the Experts: Space for the Future
Professionals in the space sector don’t try to predict the future, but a dedicated team prepares for it. The Advanced Concepts Team (ACT) is ESA’s multidisciplinary team of future concepts researchers that explore solutions to potential problems in space many decades from now. Young Graduate Trainee Belinda Rich works on Advanced Materials for Space Habitats and discusses the ACT’s work in this area as well as in artificial intelligence, fundamental physics, neuroscience, energy systems, mission analysis and more.
