Welcome back Eytan Stibbe



Welcome back to our Founding Partner Eytan Stibbe and the entire crew who returned safely and gallantly to Earth today. VCE congratulates every individual involved in the #Rakia Space Mission for creating history through a successful all-private spaceflight to the International Space Station.

The goal of this mission was to encourage creativity, innovation, cooperation and education; implement 35 scientific experiments on medical innovation, water and food security and climate change; commission 12 art installations co-created in space with eminent artists exploring the metaphysical, philosophical and sociological aspects of being human in space. The mission engaged more than 50,000 students over the globe.
