Space, the final frontier

Laura Winterling began her physics studies in 2001 at the University of Bayreuth where she received her master’s degree in 2007. Afterwards Winterling graduated at UCL, London in Organizational Psychology. She has been an astronaut support officer and astronaut instructor at European Cargo Spaceship ATV, European Space Laboratory Columbus and European Astronaut Centre, Cologne for the European Space Agency. Working in the Astronaut Support Office and as an Astronaut Instructor she trained future Astronauts and Cosmonauts and taught them how to navigate through the systems of transport ships such as ATV or to show them how to use and navigate through Columbus, one of the space science laboratories.

The International Space Station (ISS) Program also gave her the chance of teaching flight controllers in various Mission Control Centers around the globe. She spent time in Toulouse, France, Moscow and Houston, was sitting in during real-time operations on board the ISS and observed 2 manned Sojuz launches in Kasachstan.
After almost ten years she decided to start her own business and become the CEO of Space Time Concepts GmbH. Now she is connecting space and events together and is able to give exclusive insights in modern space flight ventures and her own experiences.
We are happy to be part of this truly cosmic event.
