[Open House] European Space Agency 2014Other / Other
05 October 2014, 10am - 5pm
The European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk will be hosting an Open Day in coordination with the National Science Weekend and the global World Space Week!
Space research in Holland
The ESTEC is one of the largest branches of the European Space Agency (ESA) and has areas dedicated to testing full sized satellites and human space-flight research.
For the ESA, 2014 is a special year as it marks 50 years of European cooperation in space. The theme for the day will therefore be collaborative and seeks to show visitors the work of the agency over the past half century.
Special activities on the day will include touring the facilities, learning about the European space programme, presentations and lectures by special guests and even some stories from astronauts!
Already taking place since 2014, the Open House is quite popular and advanced registration is free, but required.
