University of Glasgow ESA Plume-Regolith Testing
21 Nov 2018




This is one of the seven official ESA designated strategic facilities (Aero-Thermodynamics Directorate) distributed across Europe and is the only one that enables the realistic simulation of planetary conditions and testing of plume-regolith problems and interactions. The facility is aligned with ESA’s robotic Exploration Programmes requirements for missions including Mars Sample Return (fully online towards the end of 2018).ESA Facility.bmp
