Science & Exploration: Answering the big questions


Where do we come from? Where are we going? Why are things the way they are? Space science and exploration are entering an ambitious new era, spanning the hunt for extraterrestrial planets and detecting the fundamental nature of our Universe to roving on Mars and returning to the Moon. However, we’re not simply acquiring new knowledge – we’re helping bring the benefits of these discoveries to European industry, through commercialisation in Earth orbit, integration with new space actors and cooperation on a global scale.

  1. It is a real shame that we still do not know what our Galaxy actually looks like from the outside, All we have are artists impressions of what it may look like.
    We should have sent a probe out years ago when we first developed the Ion engine, granted it'll take many decades to even reach a region where we may gasp a small view, But so Worth the wait.

  2. Gosto deste pensar didáctico e cativante…Essa é que ESA, as convicções baseiam-se na ciência e a exploração no método, no objecto(ivo)….Certamente vivemos num mundo que se deve à ciência e que arrisca … Haja. muitas ideias e dessas uma pequena percentagem dar em sucesso ….não se pode deixar de idealizar por medo de não conseguir ter sucesso ….para se poder ter uma renovação/inovação permanente e já Einstein dizia que a inovação é produto do pensamento lógico embora o resultado tenha que o ser …começar com o gosto de explorar o nosso cérebro e a inter disciplinaridade entre tecnologias e Humanidade e vice versa….Haja este fervilhar de explorar … Não é um efeito surpreendente quando a inovação e indissociável do pensamento humano e sobretudo das ideias?

  3. Ice giants mission! Make it happen ESA! I want to see European names on craters, valleys and mares of Neptune's moons, I want to see us bring the whole collection of firsts out there, on the fascinating distant planets. We can't just do what the Americans did and stand a step behind them. Mission to the Ice Giants is something we can do.

  4. Keep exploring, humanity! Our curious minds and empathy are our greatest weapon for the survival of our species. United, we are strong; divided, we are weak.
