Update from the organisers at Noordwijk:

The weather
This weekend the weather in Noordwijk will be as it should be this time of the year: 15 degrees Celsius and sunny.

Taxi at Schiphol
Passengers via Schiphol are warned for using a taxi to Noordwijk. Please only use a taxi at the official taxi ranks and not the taxis prior to that row. This in connection with various fraud cases by taxis at Schiphol.

Russian Soyuz spaceship of André Kuipers
The study tour to Space Expo on Friday 7th October contains a brand new item. Since 20th September 2016 the Russian Soyuz spaceship of André Kuipers can be seen at Space Expo. André Kuipers is the first Dutchman with two space missions to his name. His second mission is the longest spaceflight in European history. In total the ESA astronaut spent 204 days in space: 11 days during mission DELTA in 2004 and 193 days during mission PromISSe. You may admire this latest addition to the space museum.

No partner program
Due to insufficient interest, we unfortunately had to decide to cancel the partner program on Saturday morning. The partners may visit the Annual General Meeting if they wish.
