App to the Moon – the Electronic Field Book

The European Space Agency is developing an innovative tool that integrates real-time positioning, data sharing, voice chat and much more.

This tool is called the Electronic Field Book, an all-in-one, easy-to-use platform that combines geological features with communications. This plug-and-play device is more than a means to take notes or check information on a tablet. An upgraded version of Electronic Field Book was used for the first time during the Pangaea 2018 campaign in Lanzarote, Spain.

Field repeaters with a reach of up to 100 m ensured communication with the science teams, even during an expedition inside a lava tube. The Electronic Field Book can record every step of the expedition and link the samples to places, and to other sets of samples. Every interaction with the scientists is also stored in the system.

The Field Book integrates inputs from other external tools such as microscopes, 360-degree cameras or spectrometers. Site maps, a glossary and a library of minerals are also available at your fingertips.

Pangaea 2018

ESA’s Pangaea training course prepares astronauts and space engineers to identify planetary geological features for future missions to the Moon, Mars and asteroids.

The Pangaea campaign – named after the ancient supercontinent – provides the crew with introductory and practical knowledge to find interesting rock samples as well as to assess the most likely places to find traces of life on other planets. Leading European planetary geologists share their insights into the geology of the Solar System.
The theory part is followed by field trips to the Ries crater in Germany, the Italian Dolomites and to the volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote, Spain.

Course participants include veteran ESA astronaut Thomas Reiter, Roscosmos cosmonaut Sergei Kud-Sverchkov and ‘Spaceship EAC’ lead Aidan Cowley.

Pangaea is the first step in preparing European astronauts to become planetary explorers on missions to other planets allowing them to communicate with science advisors on Earth effectively.
Through Pangaea, Europe is developing operational concepts for surface missions where astronauts and robots work together, among themselves and with scientists and engineers on Earth, using the best field geology and planetary observation techniques.

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.
