Pangaea-X test campaign – gearing up to explore other planets

Pangaea-X is a test exercise that brings together geology, high-tech survey equipment and space exploration in environments similar to those found on other planets. Astronauts, scientists, operations experts and instrumentation engineers work side-by-side to advance European know-how of integrated human and robotics mission operations.

An extension of ESA’s Pangaea geology training, the test campaign involves performing scientific investigations in extreme environments on Earth. The crew work with the latest technologies in instrumentation, navigation, remote sensing, 3D imaging and geoscience equipment, as well as testing operational concepts for surface missions where astronauts and robots work together.

Pangaea-X participants explore the barren and dry landscape of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, Spain, to prepare for the day when we set foot on other worlds. Known as the island of a thousand volcanoes, Lanzarote was chosen because of its geological similarity with Mars, such as a volcanic origin, mild sedimentary processes owing to a dry climate, hardly any vegetation and a well-preserved landscape.

360 S. Miguel, Açores – Alfred and Amaia’s Postcard Eurovision 2018

Furnas, in S. Miguel island, is where AMAIA and ALFRED, from SPAIN, filmed their Eurovision Song Contest 2018 Postcard
The Furnas region is mainly known for its volcanic activity, with hot geysers, the hottest reaching 99oC. Many visit Furnas for the therapeutic effects of the water. Many visit Furnas to eat the cozido, one of the typical dishes of the region, prepared by lowering a pot full of meats and vegetables in a hot spring heated by the volcanic system.
You have daily flights from Lisbon airport (2h25m trip) and direct flights from the United States, Canada and several European cities.
The entire island is worth a visit. Don’t miss the Lagoa das Sete Cidades, neither Lagoa do Fogo, a crater lake, surrounded by mountains with transparent waters, a peninsula and white sand beaches.
