At the 1994 Farnborough Air Show, from 5 to 11 September, the European Space Agency - together with the British National Space Centre (BNSC) and the United Kingdom Industrial Space Committee (UKISC) - will be featuring a space pavilion showing what Europe and Britain do in space.
Large satellite and launcher models, panels and specialised computer demonstrations (mainly based on Earth observation, data utilisation, guides to information systems, aerospace databases, etc.) will enable both the professional visitor and the general public to find out more about the roles of the European Space Agency and the British space community.
On Monday 5 September 1994, in the presence of Mr Ian Taylor, the Minister responsible for UK space activities, ESA's Director General Mr Jean-Marie Luton will hold a press conference on the theme "Europe putting space to work", at which Europe's achievements in space will be surveyed and its future will be outlined. The press conference in the space pavilion, will start at 9:30 hrs and will be followed by a question and answer session, ending at 11:00 hrs.
