Czechoslovakia was the third nation in space. Vladimir Remek flew to space in 1978. Czechoslovakia was present at the formulation of international space law principles and ran some space related projects within Intercosmos. The Czech Republic reassumed to this tradition after the splitting of Czechoslovakia in 1993. There are no special funds to support space R&D. Hence, the subjects must compete for R&D resources with companies from other industry areas. This improves their competitiveness. Society is widely interested in space related activities. The graduate system structure reflects this. Strong support mirrors in an institutional fractalism of public sphere. Competences in space applications are distributed among almost 20 institutions and organizations. This status harms the Czech potential in space activities and R&D. The Czech Republic became a member of ESA in 2008 but Czech companies still do not use a full potential of the membership.
