Anyway, before I go on even more... It is time to reflect back. I want to share some of the blogs and pictures that have already been posted by others. There is really only one thing that I can say right now:
Dear ESA & DLR Team Members - you put together a very fun, interactive and impressive event. Everybody there was helpful and welcoming. It was fantastic to meet people from so many different countries, with many different languages and dialects, different views, ideas and opinions. But we all shared a common interest and love: Space & Space Exploration. There is a lot of work that goes into the preparations and execution of such an event. Thank you for doing all that, for opening up your world to us. Thanks for making us part of the team, sharing your passion, excitement and work. Thanks for letting us peak behind the curtains and see what is happening there in Cologne. And thank you for introducing your European Bluesuits to us Americans (and everybody else).
Dear Tweetup Attendees - thank you for being such cool peeps! Not only did so many of you pose with me, hold me, or tape me to a stick, but you have been sharing your stories, excitement and inspiration of ESA, DLR and many missions.
But I must also ask you to not stop there! You now have gotten an inside look of the wonderful things that are being done, the science that comes out of it and the impact it has today and in the future. Now you must take this knowledge, excitement and interest to the next level and share it with others in your circles. You have an opportunity to spread the understanding of "Why are we wanting to explore what's out there?". You have the ability to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers, and explorers. It's easy to do, really. Continue to follow ESA, DLR, NASA, the Canadian, UK, Australian Space Agencies, ROSCOSMOS etc. and their missions. Learn what they all do, the missions they have, the science that comes out from them, and then share your knowledge with others.
Believe me, together we have the power and ability to make a big impact. W can demonstrate that science is not intimidating, that it is fun, interesting and necessary.
Zum Schluss moechte ich mich wirklich ganz herzlich bei Euch allen bedanken. Es kommt nicht oft vor, dass ein Gummihuhn so viele tolle Leute trifft und mit so vielen lustigen Erinnerung nach Hause kommen darf. Ganz vielen lieben Dank.
So here are some blogs and pictures from some people. I'll try to collect more.
