Registrations are now open for ESA’s Open Day in the Netherlands on Sunday 6th of October – your chance to meet astronauts, space experts and look behind the scenes of Europe’s space adventure at ESA’s establishment ESTEC in Noordwijk.
The Open Day will be highlighting ESA’s role in returning people to the Moon, including their contribution to the service module of NASA’s Orion spacecraft and their participation in the Lunar Gateway, a station around the Moon to act as a base for both robotic and human explorers. Register now for the number of visitors are limited.
