Panel discussion on Wednesday: Outer Space: The New Frontier for Private Enterprises

Will private companies take over or at least grow up to the large government-funded space programs? The history of maritime, railway and aerial transport tells us that once the new ground had been broken, private enterprises sooner or later became more efficient than the pioneering efforts of government sponsored programs. But will that apply for space travel as well, or are space and other planets too alien and to go there will always require too much investment from small and/or profit-seeking companies? And will the Puli ever bark on the Moon? The Common Sense Society invites everybody for a panel discussion and Q&A session about these topics to the Ybl Palace at Budapest, at 7 pm on June 27th. The event will be held in English. You can find the full invitation below.

Masat-1 spies the Moon

Hungary's first satellite, Masat-1 is still going strong and indulges us with lovely pictures from space. It captured images of the southern hemisphere of the Earth, the Sun and our target, the Moon. It may not be the prettiest picture of our companion, but it is nonetheless made from space, with a camera that is smaller than a fingernail and weighs as much as two euro coins – and Hungarian.
