2019 preview


ESA is looking forward to another interesting year in 2019.

ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano will return to the International Space Station, in Science Cheops will look at exoplanets, while the EDRS-C satellite will start the era of super-fast data relay on orbit.

In Kourou preparation will go full speed for Vega-C, a more powerful version of ESA’s light weight launcher, also paving the way for future Ariane 6.

And in November in Spain at ‘Space 19+’, the Council at Ministerial level, ESA will propose to its Member States a bold vision for a strong Europe in space.

  1. I dont want usa russia or china uk to have more plan! We need more plan; and tell the world that universal belong to everyone! And together, we can do better. France germany italy benelux spain-Portugal nordic!

  2. Wishing ESA and all its partners a successfull year ahead. I also hope that ESA, while is has proven to be a robust organisation, needs to reconsider some of its current paths, regarding for example the path of simply building more and more versions of the Ariane family. I am pretty sure that Ariane 6 will find a market for delivering certain payloads, one should though look ahead if maybe an Arian 7 (or maybe rename it to something like Pegasus?) to be similarly reuseable as SpaceX's Falcon series.

    Their company has prooven the concept works, so from my perspective the various European nations should not close their eyes from this possibility. Yeah, reusability might cut short on production of some components, but seriously, until we ave that figured out 100% it will take probably long enough for those production facilities to have adjusted to the new situation.

    Anyhow, wishing ESA and their plans (especially the one of an international moon village) all the best.
