ESA International Space Station

The European Space Agency announced on 2nd September that the 9th September deadline for letters of intent is approaching fast for proposals of experiments relevant to climate change that use the International Space Station as a platform.

ESA is soliciting proposals for flight experiments relevant to climate change studies using the ISS as a platform. Often invisible to the naked eye, profound changes occurring on, in and above Earth and to its climate can be observed by instruments mounted on the Space Station. This is one of many new areas where the Space Station will benefit science and technology, and where the addition of recoverable Earth observation experiments could further expand its capabilities.
