  1. Really great insights. I really appreciate these public events as they show how ESA is funtioning to a degree that allows someone with no involvement how it works.

  2. Good to see briefings like this from time to time, really great to get the details sometimes. A technical comment: on the introduction video at the start I had my volume around 30% and for the actual briefing I set it to its maximum 100%. I even plugged in external speakers to have good audibility. Personally, I would have turned up the loudness of the actual briefing and turned it down for the introduction video. Perhaps it's just me, but having very good audibility for everyone seems like very essential for such extended video's. It's probably not so easy because this material was livestreamed, but do you think I have a fair point?
