The United States Ambassador to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg J. Randolph Evans will welcome former historic Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Newt Gingrich for a series of meetings in Luxembourg starting September 22, 2020.

Ambassador Evans stated:

“The former Speaker is one of the most historic statesmen alive today having lead a political revolution in 1994, been named the Time Magazine’s ‘Man of the Year’ in 1995, crafted the ‘Contract with America’, and through his work with President Bill Clinton, helped reform welfare in America, balanced the federal budget, and strengthened America’s defenses throughout the world.  He has consistently been a thought leader in the areas of space and space exploration.  It will be an incredible honor to have him here to meet the brilliant and accomplished people that has made the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg so special and always one step ahead of the times — into space and beyond.”

During his visit, Speaker Gingrich will visit various space companies and leaders in the space sector.  With Speaker Gingrich’s background, he will know and be able to explain much more about the wonderful possibilities for Luxembourg with the Artemis Program and what follows.  “Visits by Buzz Aldrin to Newt Gingrich represents an amazing set of book ends for a country that has worked its way into the world’s elite in space,” Ambassador Evans said.
