More than 11000 people visited the Space Expo earlier this month to find out how Europe's space programme improves life on Earth.

Through its interactive displays, the Expo highlighted the critical role of Europe in space and space-based technologies and showcased the many ways that the European Space Programme’s flagship projects for satellite navigation (Galileo and EGNOS), along with Earth monitoring (GMES), have an impact on our lives.

London was the latest stop for this interactive, travelling exhibition.

More information about Galileo, EGNOS and GMES is available in the missions section of our website.
