When Thousands of citizens entered behind the hidden gates of ESA’s Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt early September, they have listen to and watched a series of short presentations about Space Tec and Space science across the centre’s past 50 years of existence. I have managed and iterate with 35 different presenters, amongst them directors, astronauts and top level scientists, the fast paced programme with short stories of just a few minutes, aiming at the visitors‘ emotions, and demonstrating the varienty of Space activities and their benefits to the people.
