We are very pleased to announce a very special side event during TUS Expo & RoboBusiness Europe: a Space Robotics Tour at the European Space Agency!

The European Space Agency’s largest test and research facility ESTEC is based in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. Here, many of the Agency’s space missions are conceived, tested and supported. Aproximately 3,000 professionals currently work at ESTEC. Robotics in space are very common – the harsh space environment makes human space exploration difficult and expensive. That’s why all current Mars missions use robotic rovers. At ESTEC, you can experience Europes pioneering work of space robotics. At ESA’s planetary lab various rover designs are being tested, among which ESA’s ExoMars rover, that will be launched in 2020. At ESA’s Telerobotics and Haptics lab, you can see amazing Exoskeleton prototypes, and the latest applications for inter-planetary robotics. The program also includes a VR tour through ESTEC’s test center and even to the International Space Station!
(min. number of 10 participants, only 35 tickets available)

Tour includes a return bus ride from World Forum, The Hague to destination. Departure on Wednesday 19 April at 13.00 hours at the World Forum, The Hague and return at 17.00 hours.
