much smaller in size proved to be an even bigger hit. The
effect of the exhibition was further enhanced by very succesful
P.R.work as well as the visit of D1 Spacelab astronaut +Reinhardt
Furrer. Late Astronaut and Visionary Furrer was one of the
first sponsors of the initial Space Expo 91 pilot exhibitions
1994, during one of the exhibitions in Weil Am Rhein (Germany),
Erik Viktor met scientist Prof.
Johan (Hans) Kleinwächter (below, reflecting in one
of his solar research refractors) a former "Peenemünde"
Rocket engineer ( he worked on an AA-Missile called "Radischen")
and leading Solar Energy scientist. Both became partners working
on an ambitious Mars-terraforming project. Their visions will
be presented in the Space World 2000 exhibition.
then Space World has visited over 32 cites in 4 European countries
including several highlights such as the 2 1/2 months exhibition
at the Forum der Technik in the famous Deutsches Museum in
Munich (see above) the visit by leading Austrian politicians
in the Vienna Space World exhibition such as former Chancelor
F.Vranitzky or several visits by astronauts such as Valery
Bykovsky, Reinhardt Furrer ... and AlexeiLeonov.
1997 the IAAA (see above) issued a renewed call for support
resulting in the participation of great artist's such as David
A. Hardy (GB), Andreas von Retyi(D), AnaKozel (ARG), and
1997 saw one of the most succesful tours, taking the exhibition
straight through Germany from Berlin, via Frankfurt to Saarbrücken.
In Frankfurt, the city of the bankers, large posters of the
exhibition could be found stuck to the walls of all the underground
then more exhibitions and tours followed in Switzerland, Belgium
and Great Britain.
