On Wednesday night 6 German astronauts were welcomed to the reception hosted by Consul General Meister on the occasion of NASA's Astronaut Week. The astronauts discussed how their trips to space and orbiting the entire globe in 90 minutes altered their perspectives of our earth. They also discussed the successful 20-year cooperation between NASA, ESA, and the Russian space agency, Roscosmos. Pictured in the first picture are the astronauts and Consul General Meister (from left to right: Ulf Merbold, Gerhard Thiele, Ernst Messerschmid, Reinhold Ewald, Consul General Meister, Klaus-Dietrich Flade, and Hans Schlegel).
