On 3 April 1968, the new European Space Technology and Research Centre, ESTEC, was inaugurated by HRHs Princess Beatrix and Prince Claus of the Netherlands. In the decades since that day, ESTEC has grown into ESA’s largest establishment, and the technical and organisational hub of Europe’s space sector.
