I first met Mausonaut and his human person Holger Voss at the rocket launch of the Sentinel-2B satellite at the European Space Agency’s Operations Center. Recently, I flew to Berlin to attend a ESA SpaceTalk at the Siftung Planetarium Berlin to reunite with Mausonaut, Holger, and ESA’s Director General Jan Wörner. From there, our curiosity grew, adventures began, and so did the conversations with Mausonaut about imagination, exploration, and the curiosity it takes to make space (literally and figuratively) for creativity through play. We hope that you will enjoy reading this article with your families during this holiday season and wish you the happiest of holidays and best wishes for the new year and decade!
