The former Hungarian Space Strategy will come to an end in 2020.
The Hungarian Government is working on the new Space Strategy which will have ambitious goals. The minister responsible for space matters said that Hungary’s mission is to send a Hungarian astronaut to the International Space Station (ISS) by 2024. Currently, Hungary is working on launching a scientific satellite into space and developing a scientific on-board measurement system which will be installed in ISS. The minister signed a cooperation agreement with the French Space Agency regarding space research and satellite technology projects. As for financial matters, Hungary’s contribution to European Space Agency was doubled this year.
