Space is not being communicated properly outside the space bubble. A short thread. #spacecomm

What space is not: A Billionaires playground.
What space is: An industry that massively helps to combat climate change, mitigate natural disasters and protect the environment.
Space is not a waste of tax payer money, it's an economical powerhouse that can change things for the better, including creating thousands of new jobs each year. #space4all
The Climate Ticket Austria, which allows you to use all public transport and trains unlimited for a whole year, is the best example. It's made possible by Satellite data and will help to massively reduce CO2 Output.
And no, I'm not being paid to advertise this. I'm just very much annoyed that at the moment two/three rich white men flying to space currently dictate the narrative of what space is in the public eye, when it couldn't be further from the truth. 4/5 #spaceoutreach
No one denies that these billionaires might just accelerate the development of certain technologies & get the public excited about space once more, but we need to communicate better that space is something benefitting us all everyday, - and not just a few rich people. 5/5
