On 24 March 2022, it will have been 30 years since the first Belgian went into space. It was on this date that astronaut Dirk Frimout left for space in the American shuttle Atlantis. The year 2022 also marks the 20thanniversary of Frank De Winne’s first space flight. These anniversaries should not pass unnoticed, which is why we are organising Belgian Space week. An event at the Planetarium on 20 October evening puts space research in the spotlight.
