MARSISKE HANS-ARTHUR, "The Legacy of Columbus", Leonardo, Vol.43, n°2, pp. 176-177, 2010, Cambridge, MIT Press


By giving the name "Columbus" to the European Space Laboratory the European Space Agency (ESA) has put itself in the tradition of European explorers and erected a historical monument in space. But this monument is incomplete, since it ignores the high price that humanity has paid for European expansion. If space exploration is really about humanity going to space and not only a few technologically developed nations, as representatives of ESA repeatedly declare, then another monument should be added to the European Space Laboratory.
