European Space Expo welcomes its 250.000 visitor in Vilnius!

On September 19th, 2013, the European Space Expo in Vilnius had the pleasure to welcome its 250.000th visitor since the beginning of its Tour of Europe.

The European Commission has launched the European Space Expo, a free interactive exhibition that illustrates the services and applications derived from the major European space programmes in the domains of satellite navigation (Galileo and Egnos) and Earth observation (Copernicus).

The Expo is showing how space and its applications provide benefits to Europe’s citizens and highlighting the critical role of the European Union in space and space-based technologies, which are expected to create global market opportunities and help to support job creation and economic growth.

This exhibition has already been deployed in several European cities, like:

  • Copenhagen
  • Toulouse
  • Helsinki
  • Brussels
  • Vienna
  • Larnaca (Cyprus)
  • London
  • Madrid
  • Budapest
  • Hannover
  • Warsaw
  • Bratislava
  • Dublin
  • Rome

The Space Expo landed in Vilnius on September 17th and will now go to Tallinn (1-6 October), Munich (5-10 November) and Lisbon (4-9 December).

With interactive and static displays, visitors can learn about the wide range of innovative technologies that space offers them.
