You don't use a match to start a rocket engine. Dutch company APP specializes in igniters, and has found itself in related businesses such as parachute deployment devices and fire extinguishers. Their products are to be found on many space missions. Hosts Tyse Roes and Herbert Blankesteijn talk to Edwin Vermeulen of APP, who explains why igniting rocket engines is a science in itself.
