ESA’s Pangaea training course is preparing astronauts and space engineers to identify planetary geological features for future missions to the Moon, Mars and asteroids.
The campaign provides the crew with introductory and practical knowledge of Earth and planetary geology. Astronauts work under leading European planetary geologists.
The theory part was followed by field trips to the Ries Crater in Germany, the Italian Dolomites and to the volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote, Spain.
