Andy Bowyer, CEO and Founder of Kleos Space Luxembourg, shines a light on dark activity at sea.

Luxembourg Space Agency Q&A

Can you tell a little bit about how you ended up in the space industry?

The important thing, however, is the context you’re working in. The work is the same, whether you’re engineering in a nuclear substation, or an automotive company. The engineering is very similar to space engineering in a lot of senses, but the context is different, and the parameters are different.
