Description

As Europe’s centre of excellence for mission operations, the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) is home to the engineers who control spacecraft in orbit, manage our global tracking station network, and design and build the systems on ground that support missions in space. Since 1967, over 60 satellites belonging to ESA and its partners have been flown from Darmstadt, Germany.
