Thirty years ago Belgium was in space

A column by Xavier Ziegers (

Like the human body, the social body knows the moments of turmoil, of ups and downs, which rise above the grayness around us. Thus the exploitation of the amazing Expo 58, Eddie or Little Belgians in Mexico eliminates the USSR under the banner of Grand Jojo. Thirty years ago our first astronaut Dark Frymouth had some of the space epic. Logically, because the first man to walk on the moon was already a young Belgian reporter in 1954! The stratospheric popularity of Popering’s citizens – here it is suggested to associate his village with Poh-pring in Tibet – is explained by its simplicity, its availability. Now Viscount has nothing to do with “Stoffer”, not even an ounce of nationalism, which is not suitable for those who think of the world from too high, no longer recognizing its picrocoline boundaries.

“Did I do the first thing? Going to the rapture behind the window, ”said our first astronaut. This, in contrast to the current robot-soldiers of the so-called popular great power, who still argue in arrogant political terms, was also true, in the case of the early pioneers, who accepted the moon as a mediator in the political rivalry. A Symbolic Boxing Match: The Cold War. America has won, but the ESA (European Space Agency) has inevitably avoided this trap: how can one become a nationalist by signing a cooperation agreement with 22 member states, one concerned country and seven others?

What should we remember from this 46th expedition of the American shuttle, which was launched on March 24, 1992, out of a total of 134 people (two of which killed a total of 14 people) and was conducted in collaboration with Europe? The name of this nine-day mission (minus two hours 8) was Atlas, not the mythical Greek giant but the English abbreviation for the atmospheric laboratory of applied science, which has four main measuring instruments: three Royal Institute of Aeronautical Spatial de Belzic (IASB) and Royal Meteorological (Royal Meteorological). One from RMI) is dedicated to the study of solar currents, the Earth’s atmosphere and its photochemistry for the purpose of climate research. This shows the importance of the mission because these technologies have already allowed observation of the basic parameters of solar physics and climate. They are still used at the International Station. Fremont owes much to his position in space through his expertise as a doctor in applied physics and his experimental perseverance. But all the astronauts were “cracked”, including Frank de Win, 20 years younger than Frameout, a technical engineer and experimental pilot who took part in two missions and conducted 23 experiments during his six months on the ISS. In which he was even the commander in 2009. Yes, progress inevitably, necessarily, through compulsory teaching, passes from them to the rainbow that stretches from our vocational schools. A clich অবশ্যই, of course, but it must be hammered at home because there is no other alternative to the social sinking waiting for us. And a good welder counts like an astronaut.

We often talk about Mars travel. Wrong, because astronauts will be condemned by a powerful radioactive radiation that, combined with the intense flow of plasmas emitted by the sun’s upper atmosphere, stops nothing. On the way back there will be at least cancer and there will be wheelchairs for everyone. And who would want to live 18 months together in a tin can, without a direct connection to a land far away, drinking recycled urine? (For Solid, I mean at least … skeptical!)

Satellites have become essential. They are the vectors of today’s communication-centric world. And many, many contemporary dinosaurs, are no longer able to detect an asteroid approaching us. But they post the best observations in the world, so the relay of SOS that it sends us. Will we finally listen to them? It’s up to everyone to think about it. Frimout is still doing it at 81 years old. The advantage of Dark!
