    "The space services market is actively developing today. Together with launch services and satellite production, various services related to information processing and scientific research are developing. New areas emerge, such as space tourism, mining, energy in space. All this shows that the prospects for the development of various segments of the space market are great, and we all have to concentrate our efforts on the efficient use of emerging opportunities", said Rector of the MAI.
