ESA shows off its wares

A slideshow of the European Space Agency’s pavilion in the Berlin Air and Space Show has gone online. The exhibition included bits on ESA’s Earth Observation program (today praised by polar scientists) and their contribution to the International Space Station (which performs a number of diverse experiments, including tracking of ships to test the viability of a new global monitoring system). Deeper space missions were also highlighted including the asteroid visiting Rosetta mission (due for a date with the next target on my birthday, the tenth of July), given added interest by the return of JAXA’s sample return mission Hayabusa on Sunday.
