On Thursday, July 4, 2013, His Royal Highness Prince Philippe of Belgium arrived at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Antwerp to participate in the conference, Probing Vegetation: From Past to Future.
Upon his arrival the prince was bombarded by the press hoping he would answer questions about his father’s abdication announcement early yesterday evening. “I am fully aware of the responsibilities that I have. I will continue to invest myself with all my heart…” said Prince Philippe before being ushered into the conference.
Anyway, the Probing Vegetation: From Past to Future two-day conference will focus on “…the operational and scientific achievements of SPOT-VEGETATION and the perspectives that will be offered to the user’s community by Proba-V…” if that makes any sense. 🙂
