The Ministers of Space: Europe Plans Space
The Italian city of Naples was the dramatic setting for a summit to set Europe's future in space. From rocket launchers to Mars explorers, everything was under debate - in particular, money. Ministers from the 20 member countries of the European Space Agency, including newcomers Poland, had to decide which projects are funded and how.
The European Space Agency left the Naples summit with the cash and political support for a 10.1 billion euro space programme for the coming few years.
