ESA safeguards Europe’s guaranteed access to space through its Future Launchers Preparatory Programme.
FLPP weighs up the opportunities and risks of different launch vehicle concepts and associated technologies. Its demonstrators and studies hone emerging technologies to give Europe's rocket builders a valuable head-start as they begin the demanding work of turning the chosen design into reality.
Daniel Neuenschwander, ESA Director of Space Transportation, answers questions on how ESA plans future space transportation, how new materials can help, and how this will affect the way we build rockets in the future.
