us-consulatebuch-apollo

On March 28 2013 was a meeting held at the U.S. Consulate in Leipzig with the founders of the International Space Education Institute (ISEI), Yvonne and Ralf Heckel, and the Consul for Public Affairs, Ms. Teta Moehs. The last visit between the two parties took place in 2006. It was a meeting with the former Consul Scheland, just before a shuttle launch.

There was a cordial conversation about the activities of the Institute since then. The results earned respect. Despite tight time schedules, both parties agreed to stay in closer contact. Above all, the ISEI contributes to educational as well as cultural work with its 10-year experience and the support of about 70 exchange students. Furthermore, the ISEI maintains good relationships with high-tech companies in the U.S. and Germany. The Board is a member of the German-American Heritage Foundation (Washington), the Astronaut Memorial Foundation (Cape Canaveral) and a member of the Ambassador program of the U.S. Space & Rocket center in Huntsville Alabama. Multiple reciprocal visits each year consolidate these relations.
Also in preparation to appreciate the work of the Leipzig German-American Prof. Dr. Jesco von Puttkamer (NASA), it became obvious that in future there are many opportunities of mutual cooperation.

Ms. Moehs reported on the current work of the consulate and handed over the book "Apollo - The story of the first voyages to the Moon" for the Institutes-library. It was made a group photo for the Facebook page of the U.S. Consulate. On the next day, the U.S. Consul Marc J. Powel and Ralf Heckel met at the German-American “Stammtisch” at the cafe Telegraph for a first getting-to-know-meeting.
