Presentation of the pilot project
4 May 2017

The Ecsite Space Group was set up in 2012. It facilitates cooperation and exchange among science centres, museums, research institutions, universities, national space agencies and industries all over Europe. Together they design collaborative projects to better share European space activities with the general public.

Ready-to-use ISS kit

A new kit, “The International Space Station: Living and Working in Space” has been developed by Ecsite museums representatives with the support of ESA and the Space group. This is based on the success of the “Hook up with Rosetta” campaign.

This ready-to-use kit aims to raise public awareness of:

  • The ISS, the world’s largest-ever international scientific venture
  • Europe’s contribution to the Station
