The first test of a lunar sortie

ESA astronauts tested replicas of the NASA Apollo mission tools, which were manufactured by COMEX, during a training session held at the Lanzarote Geopark on the ESA (European Space Agency) Spaceflight Analog grounds.

The PANGAEA-X training which took place on two geological sites is intended for astronauts’ drills.

PANGAEA-X is designed to carry out technological, operational, and scientific experiments, intended to improve the operational readiness and realism of future PANGAEA training and to assist the ESA in preparing future human and robotic missions.

Hervé Stevenin, the ESA instructor, explains: « It is essential to optimize the tools and equipment for the exploration. Safety and efficiency will be the keys to the success of the upcoming trips on the Moon. »
