On a mission to European Space Agency (ESA)
The European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk is ESA’s largest facility in Europe and it’s technical heart. In Noordwijk more than two thousand specialists work on scientific missions, manned space flights, earth observation, telecommunication- and navigation satellites.
During this excursion to Noordwijk we will have a look inside, visit the Planetary Robotics Lab and learn more about ESA’s future space missions. Curious? Join our mission to ESA!
