ESA à la CSI
In the US crime series CSI, investigators are interested in the smallest measurable traces to solve a case. For ESA, this is no different. In the Materialistic Laboratory, engineers search for faults in the material, which might cause the success or failure of a mission. In three short episodes, we show the ESA investigators at work – and how they solve the problem.Read more

Lancom Systems GmbH
One of the most important parts of a space mission is communication. The exchange of information between astronauts and base is crucial for a mission’s success. The astronaut often doesn’t have the necessary attentiveness or knowledge to keep an eye on all important factors. The communications specialist LANCOM Systems provides the technical equipment for the field simulation “Mars2013”. Dr Gernot Grömer, head of the field mission and chairman of the Austrian Space Forum (ÖWF), explains in detail what constitutes a space mission on Mars and which role communication is going to play.Read more
