the mystical reverie, ambitiousness and reality that surround KEO, lies
the confrontation of its technical know-how.
Between the confrontation of the technical know-how of this dream and the demonstration of its technical feasibility, lies the initiative of certain men.
Between these men and the implementation of the technical research lies a challenge.
