Special Feature- Satellites: A mini revolution unfolds above us


The Special Feature of this month's issue looks at the global and European satellite industry, one of the most innovative sectors in terms of technological development and economic expansion. The Life After segment this edition, catches up with a former Maria Sklodowska-Curie fellow who has been at the forefront of research that could help us better understand the unfolding climate crisis. The issue also celebrates the NeMo project that recently scooped up a prestigious mobility award in the city where the car is king - Los Angeles.
