Space Safety


ESA’s Space Safety activities aim at mitigating and preventing the effects of hazards from space, protecting our Pale Blue Dot, its inhabitants, and the vital infrastructure − like satellites in orbit and power grids on the ground − on which we have become so dependent.

They also aim to help ensure Europe’s cyber resilience and enhance Europe’s civil capacity for secure communication, rapid reaction EO services and disaster management.

While ESA’s Space Safety efforts take place across the Agency, ESOC is ‘home turf’ for the teams focussing on space debris and space weather.
