Panalists consider the observations of Pierre Auger, the first President of the French Space Agency (CNES) : Many scientists, he wrote, would like to call for a sort of moratorium of science fiction, and tell science fiction writers: Hold it right there, stop giving away what we are going to do. Every time the scientists make a fresh breakthrough, the public are already used to the idea. They do not find new discoveries astonishing any more, and it is a pity? Is there really a future for space exploration or should we see the 1960s as a space oddity?
