The Evolution of Private Space Shuttles: A Pilot's Perspective

Discussing “The Evolution of Private Space Shuttles”, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) warmly welcomed Mr Laurent Muhlematter at today’s “GCSP Fellows' Briefing”. 

Mr Muhlematter, a test pilot who has studied in the United States, is a new GCSP Executive-in-Residence and holds a Master’s Degree in Flight Test Certification and Strategic Studies. The last six years of his assignment have been dedicated to civilian shuttle research, development and analysis.  

His presentation on the evolution of private space shuttles was based on his own experience in having traveled on two space missions. After the presentation he took questions from GCSP fellows and staff.  

The Fellows' Briefing is organized by the Global Fellowship Initiative (GFI). This briefing was the first in the series for 2017 and the GFI looks forward to organizing more throughout the year.

Mr Muhlematter will be participating in GCSP’s course, “The Future of Outer Space Security”, running from 22 - 23 Mar 2017.
