  1. Yay, lovely to see a dutch part within the ESA programs. Amazing to know this rover is on it's way and now we feel some pressure to retrieve the samples it will produce. Extremely delicate mission so yeah needs a lot of care put in to this idea. Great that we are helped and guided to follow this amazing mission! Thank you very much for uploading! Let's see if we can construct a way to retrieve these samples, would be so much data coming from that mission, a great challenge for mankind 😀

  2. How much do technological advancements in space robotics affect research in robotics for commercial use here on earth and vice versa?
    Is there any correlation between these two industries? Example space toilets and commercial flights toilets?
    Thank you for the content and all you do ❤️
