Enabling Information Exchange for European Space Agency's
ESA’s Pangaea training course prepares astronauts and space engineers to identify planetary geological features for future missions to the Moon, Mars and asteroids. Pangaea-X is a test campaign that brings together geology, high-tech survey equipment and space exploration. Astronauts, scientists, operations experts and instrumentation engineers work side-by-side to advance European know-how of integrated human and robotics mission operations. Astronauts from five space agencies around the world take part in ESA’s CAVES training course which prepares them to work safely and effectively in multicultural teams in an environment where safety is critical.
