The European Space Agency operates and develops a wide range of missions covering astronomy, heliophysics, planetary science, and fundamental physics. ESA's stand at the IAU General Assembly offers visitors the opportunity to catch up on the latest news and results from missions including the Rosetta comet-catcher, the Planck cosmic microwave background probe, and the Gaia billion-star astrometric surveyor, as well as future missions such as LISA Pathfinder, BepiColombo, and Euclid. There will also be the possibility to follow interactive demonstrations of ESA's space science mission data archives.
