The Opening of the MVA French Network. In this 21st century, we are trying to reach the moon and the stars once again. But this time we want to settle there. In this event is to present the main challenges and opportunities of the Moon Village and the contribution that the MVA is bringing to its implementation. This event will represent the opening of the MVA French network and explain how people can join the MVA.
