Aurora is a long-term programme from the European Space Agency for the exploration of the Moon and Mars.

Its support comes primarily from the ESA member states.

One aim of these pages is to help raise public awareness of Aurora and the benefits for the UK of involvement in the programme.

The other aim leads on from that - to encourage people to help gain support for that involvement by writing to those who can influence the decision-making process, expecially MPs, expressing their own support.

These pages . . .

  • provide background information on Aurora
  • include links to other sites
  • explain why action is needed now
  • and describe what you can do to help

The theme of the 2012 Olympics is "Inspire a generation".

If the Olympics can inspire a new generation of people to take up sports, why can't the exploration of space inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers?

If you would like to arrange a day of activities that will inspire and excite your pupils, then contact me now.
