Protecting our Planet

Space Safety & Security at ESA


As we discover more about the awe-inspiring scale and nature of the Universe, planet Earth appears ever-more unique and fragile.


Living so close to an active star, in a Solar System filled with ancient and fast-moving space rocks, on a planet that is becoming increasingly surrounded by discarded satellites and their debris, comes with a plethora of possibilities for something to go wrong.


ESA’s space safety and security activities aim to protect our Pale Blue Dot, its inhabitants and the vital infrastructure on which our societies and economies rely. This new series of posters illustrates the scale and breadth of this ambitious endeavour, all available for download now!
