CSO published a fourth issue of a brochure about space activities in the Czech Republic. It is made available to a foreign audience during International astronautical congress and other similar occasions. The material is available for download in the attachement or in printed version in our office. For all enquiries please send us a message through the contact form.
In December CSO updated its space catalogue, which lists Czech industry, universities and academia interested or even experienced in collaboration on space projects. First edition, which was published two years ago, received considerably high interest by the international community. Second and updated issue now includes 78 entries and is accompanied by a simple map of individual locations.
