Highlights 2013

2013 has been a year of firsts, farewells and astonishing findings. It began with ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano training for the Volare Mission in Russia's Star City and it ended with Gaia, ESA's billion-star surveyor, lifting off from Europe's spaceport in Kourou. But a lot more has happened in between!

Preview 2014

2014 has all the elements to become an interesting year for Europe in space... Exciting launches, new European astronauts on the ISS, new satellites and landers and important decisions that will mark the direction of Europe's future space programme. But 2014 starts with one name: ROSETTA.
