The US Ambassador to Poland, Mark Brzezinski, invited representatives of the Polish space sector, led by the Polish Space Agency (POLSA), to present space achievements and technologies to NASA Administrator, Bill Nelson. The meeting was attended by representatives of the Łukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation.
The Institute showcased following products at a special exhibition:
- HIPERGOL engine
- Auxiliary engines of the ILR-33 AMBER 2K rocket
- Mock-up of the WR-2 launcher with the ILR-33 AMBER 2K rocket
- Solid propellant deorbit engines
The head of NASA emphasized the role of Polish space technologies that are currently participating in missions and expressed hope for their further development and impact on the implementation of subsequent international projects. He also counts on the support of American projects by the Polish sector – drawing up ambitious plans for interplanetary flights to the Moon, Mars and to the stars.
Both the Ambassador and the NASA Administrator emphasized the contribution of outstanding Polish engineers to the development of the sector and their role in NASA structures. Bill Nelson hopes to strengthen relations with ESA, and thus with POLSA and the Polish space sector.
