As 2018 draws to a close and the festivities begin, our offices will close from 24th December 2018 until 7th January 2019. We take this opportunity to wish our network of customers, suppliers and partners a very happy and smooth entry into the new year 2019. We use this time also to reflect on our activities over the past year, demonstrating the wide range of services we offer across the many projects we have worked on.
German ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst is scheduled to return to Earth tomorrow (20 December) with his crewmates, NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor and Roscosmos cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev. On the morning of Saturday 22 December 2018, media are invited to attend a press conference at ESA’s European Astronaut Centre in Cologne. Design & Data will be providing the livestream for ESA.
In a new video production for LSG Sky Chefs, we illustrate how it is taking its airline catering and in-flight services to a whole new level. Their Global Culinary Excellence team developed “bonus food” for German ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst ahead of his “Horizons” mission.
As part of our service offering, we produce a full range of content across all forms of media, catering for the space industry. Over recent months we have supported a number of livestreams for ESA that allow the public to watch space events in real-time.
The next flight to the Red Planet will depart at 09:31 GMT (10:31 CET) on 14 March from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Representatives of the media are invited by ESA to follow the event live from ESA’s Operations Centre (ESOC) in Darmstadt, Germany. Can’t make it in person? Design & Data will be supporting ESA with the livestream.
