The establishment of a Greek Space Agency by the Digital Policy, Telecoms and Information minsitry is a very positive step, Eleni Antoniadou, researcher at the Biosciences department of NASA said on Tuesday.

This initiative should have been taken years ago, she posted on Facebook. She added that the Greek Space Agency is necessary for the development of new technology, the claiming of new resources and the interconnection with international innovation centres.

Moreover, she explained: “A space agency is one thing, a space base another, the astronaut base another and the missile launch base another”.
