“New Space” is the name of the growing, aerospace sector financed by private investors and shaped by innovations. Developments are being increasingly driven by numerous start-ups rather than large state agencies. Nevertheless, the state and private enterprises often co-operate closely in this area. The microlauncher competition run by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) has selected three winners who are working on innovative microlaunchers designed to transport such things as satellites. The competition winners are being funded with a total of 25 million euros from Germany’s contribution to the European Space Agency ESA. Here we present the three enterprises:
The Group of Seven (G7) is not an international organization, but an informal association of the seven democratic industrialized countries of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States of America – plus the European Union as a permanent guest. The members represent about 10 percent of the world's population and 45 percent of global gross national income.

There are lots of answers to the question of what home is. Everyone has their own ideas – as do twelve artists from Germany and Israel who have been searching for their 'home'. In May 2022, they showed their answers in Frankfurt am Main in the exhibition 'home.frankfurt.telaviv' – in pictures, videos and dance performances.

Previously, this had only been possible online because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The exhibition will also be shown in Tel Aviv at the end of 2022.
