As a branch of Space Science and view of current and incoming planets exploration missions, Planetary Science is gaining relevance and attention.
Planetary Science is the scientific study of planets and their planetary systems which includes moons, ring systems, gas clouds, and magnetospheres. It involves understanding how planetary systems formed, how these systems work and how all their components interact. It is a cross-discipline field including aspects of astronomy, atmospheric science, geology, space physics, biology and chemistry.
MEEO is bringing its decadal experience in Earth Observation data to planetary science projects to support scientific communities in data exploitation services development. Thanks to the scientific missions for Mars exploration, a large amount of data is now available and needs to be made available to planetary scientist to be analysed. In the framework of the European Open Science Cloud program, MEEO is evolving its data exploitation tools to support and promote the Open Science practices and play active role in the materialization of the EOSC ecosystem by efficiently engaging the Planetary Science community.
MEEO is proud to be part of the Consortium in charge of implementing the DestinE Core Service Platform (DESP) of the European Space Agency. The European initiative Destination Earth aims to create a “digital twin” of the...
