Future activities

The European Space Agency has a programme to plan new science projects for the next 20 years, called Cosmic Vision. European scientists are working together to create exciting missions that will meet future scientific and technological challenges.
Some of the main themes of ESA’s Cosmic Vision programme are:
  • How does the Solar System work?
  • What conditions are needed for life and planets to form?
  • What are the basic physical laws of the Universe?
  • How did the Universe begin and what is it made of?
