To Mars and beyond: Europe's push to the final frontier
In this 73rd edition of the Research*EU Magazine, we shed light on efforts preparing the ground for the Exomars mission; the next-generation of space farming technologies; novel telecommunications for outer space; the relatively new notion of “planetary protection” from outer solar system bodies; a new rover concept for Moon exploration; a new facility to host space samples; and, last but not least, efforts to reduce the environmental impact of (what we hope) will be an increasing number of space launches. And because Mars is only the beginning of a new era, we close the section with a recap of the achievements of ETAEARTH – the EU project responsible for identifying the closest-to-Earth exoplanets observed by the Kepler mission.
The magazine continues with our usual thematic sections, as well as a list of upcoming events hosted by or involving EU-funded research projects.
