Savoyard aims for the moon

The race to send men to the moon continues. At the forefront is NASA, which announces the sending of four astronauts by 2026, as part of its Artemis programme, ahead of China, which is ready for 2029. But on the European side, the European Space Agency (ESA) knows this: when it comes to space transportation And exploration, the challenges ahead are great: “ We must develop critical technologies and capabilities to ensure that Europe does not lose its advantage “, writes Joseph Aschbacher, Director General of the European Space Agency, on his website.

Khalaf Occitanie, Head of Sector, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes focuses on subcontractors in the field of aerospace. But in the face of recruitment difficulties, in 2018, the focus was on regional training. Industrialists, grouped within the Aura Aviation and Space Group since the end of 2015, can count on the Aura Academy to ensure excellence in youth training, since 2018. There is still a political will that according to some professionals is still very timid.
