Summary:
Despite funding being scarce, Europe still has grand plans to make it to the Moon and Mars. The first goal is to build an outpost on the Moon to facilitate further trips into space. But such a station would have to be contactable at all times. Space researchers in Stuttgart are working out how to set up a sustained radio connection. They hope to position communication satellites at a spot between the Moon and the Earth where the gravitational forces of the two celestial bodies balance out.
