bavaria one: mission zukunft

Not to be outdone by Donald Trump’s desire to create his own strategic Space Force, our own slightly milder embarrassment of a minister president Marcus Söder (previously) is pressing for the German state of Bavaria to marshal its already significant contributions to the national German space programme and ESA into its own aeronautics agency.
I do not know exactly what to make of Herr Söder using his own face as the logo and perhaps is meant to either be a foil or a rival for narcissistic heights.  As with Trump’s directive, there was a notable paucity on how resources might be allocated under this already (mostly) future-oriented administration.
