On 16th and 17th March 2017, the G20 conference "Digitizing Manufacturing - Initiatives, Best Practices and Policy Approaches" took place in Berlin. The conference at the Berlin Congress Center at Alexanderplatz was characterized by numerous lectures and panel discussions. The organizer of the event was the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy.

Summer comes and for many young people school ends. For the first time in their lives, pupils must leave the prescribed and regular school life and have to choose a career path. In choice of a training place, we want to inspire young people for our high technology and arouse passion for space communication.

Not long ago we ware able to witness the launch of the groundbreaking SmallGEO satellite Hispasat 36W-1 live and now the next milestone is at the gates: Sentinel-2B is ready for take off and will be launched tonight at around 02:49 h (CET) on board a European Vega launcher.

With Hispasat 36W-1, 25 years after DFS-Copernicus a German communications satellite launched once again into geostationary orbit. On board: a payload from Tesat-Spacecom.

To all the night owls, aerospace enthusiasts and satellite lunatics: A Soyuz VS16 rocket with the OHB-built SmallGEO satellite HISPASAT 36W-1 and our telecommunication payload starts today at 02:32 pm Central European Time, or "exactly" in 14 hours and 6 minutes. Here, thanks to ESA and livestream.com, you can experience the launch up close and live.

For more than fifteen years, Tesat-Spacecom from Backnang has stood for quality and innovation in space equipment. Fifteen years full of exciting developments, innovations, great milestones and the one or other big and small revolution in space. With pride one can look back on what has been created, and with pride one can look into the future, on what is still to come to us. With the self-confidence of more than 700 realized space projects and more than 250 million in-orbit hours, we expect this future with excitement as well as with enthusiastic curiosity.

The TGO space probe was now on its way to the Red Planet for seven months, and is now on the finishing line of the ExoMars mission. Yesterday afternoon, the international team of ESA and Roskosmos researchers celebrated the first milestone: The separation of "Schiaparelli" from the research probe "TGO", which was not quite uninhibitive, was successfully mastered. Now it takes a few more days until Schiaparelli has braked to the right speed, before it lands on Mars on Wednesday.

Using an Atlas-V rocket and on board the spacecraft OSIRIS-REx amplifiers made by Tesat-Spacecom make themselves tomorrow on the way to the asteroid Bennu. After New Horizons and Juno, OSIRIS-REx is the third spacecraft of the New Frontiers Program of NASA. The aim of the OSIRIS-REx mission is to collect samples and return them to Earth. More precisely, the probe shall gather around 60 grams of regolith, "non-earthly loose material on the surface of asteroids", with its arm, store it safely and bring it back to Earth.

On 28 and 29 July, we had again a little enthusiastic crowd of young pioneers in our house who could hardly have been more curious and craft tempered. We're talking of course of our annual summer vacation program that we organize for years at Tesat-Spacecom and bring children and young people playfully closer to what we do and space technology in general.
