In cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the "Living in Space" exhibition forum issued the future-oriented application of technical textiles using the example of space travel.

"High-tech materials based on fibres are essential in space travel when it comes to reducing the weight of space capsules. Every additional gram increases costs. Furthermore, textiles also save lives.” Dr. Reinhold Ewald, ESA astronaut and professor for astronautics and space stations
