From Saarbrücken into space

This is the motto of EURO SPACE DAY, being organised on 22 October 2014 in Saarbrücken Castle by the Regionalverband Saarbrücken and numerous partners. The event centres on the combination of a public live videoconference with German astronaut Alexander Gerst at the International Space Station and a company fair, a pairing unique in Germany. It was the cross-border nature of this event which prompted the European Space Agency (ESA) to give Saarbrücken the exclusive opportunity to offer this ISS live video call.
