2023 – ESAs Year in Space – watch the incredible year of non-stop missions
2023’s highlight – the highly anticipated launch of Juice, Europe’s Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer. The Juice spacecraft placed on course to Jupiter on the second-to-last Ariane 5 launch vehicle in April. After an eight-year journey, Juice will begin observing the giant gas planet and its three large ocean-bearing moons – Ganymede, Calisto and Europa.
The Euclid space telescope launched in July with the aim of unravelling the enigmas of ‘dark matter’ and ‘dark energy’. Euclid’s first images released in November, revealing razor-sharp astronomical images with detail never before seen by a telescope across such a large patch of the sky.
As space debris becomes an increasingly serious issue, ESA is determined to search for solutions. Together with its commercial and institutional partners, ESA has developed the ‘Zero Debris Charter’, launched this year. By signing the Charter, space entities worldwide can register their intent to work together towards the sustainable use of Earth’s orbital environment.
