The INTA Canary Space Centre (INTA CEC) was built in the 1960’s for the ground support of NASA Apollo missions. Since then, it has been constantly adapting to support different space satellite missions from the ground via Tracking, Telemetry and Command activities. We will learn about interesting history of INTA CEC, as well as ongoing and future space missions, visiting both internal (e.g. control room) and external areas of the Canary Space Centre. Picnic will be provided during the visit.
