EU space center in Prague opens to the public

On 9 and 10 December, you’re invited to visit one of the most important sites for space exploration in Europe.

Prague is one of the European Union’s main centers for space research, but what exactly scientists do here is a mystery to most people. This weekend offers a unique opportunity to learn more about Czechia’s role in space exploration. The European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) is holding an open day at its headquarters in Prague’s Holešovice district on 9 and 10 December from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., where visitors will be introduced to EUSPA and its mission.

The two EUSPA Open Days will include seminars, space workshops, competitions and even a chance to ask staff about career opportunities. The main attraction will be an exhibition on the Copernicus Programme, a key project of the Headquarters in Prague: an Earth observation program that monitors the environment using satellites, land, sea, and airborne stations.

Further information available on the EUSPAs website.
