European Space Expo Arrives in Zagreb

eseThe European Space Expo has arrived in the Croatian capital Zagreb…

Completely FREE to the general public, the expo has been popular around Europe and will be open on Zagreb’s main square from 12 – 21 June.

Over 750 000 European citizens have now visited the European Space Expo, as it continues its tour of major European cities. The free exhibition highlights the many ways in which the EU space programme helps EU citizens ‘on the ground’ every day.

The Expo presents key information on the European space programmes – from satellite navigation (Galileo and EGNOS) to Earth observation (Copernicus) in an engaging and entertaining way. Highlights include the ‘OmniGlobe’ – an interactive hologram of the earth’s atmosphere, an impressive model of the ‘Galileo’ satellite and lots more.

The aim of the Expo is to show citizens how European space policy and space-based technologies benefit our everyday lives on earth and also of course, their importance for the European economy and job creation.
