EU-Universe Awareness is excited to introduce the European Space Agency (ESA) as the newest addition to Space Scoop, our astronomy news service for children. Space Scoop aims to capture the imagination of children using the latest discoveries about our awe-inspiring Universe, making it a great stepping-stone for introducing youngsters to science and technology.
In February 2011 Space Scoop began translating the latest press releases from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) into a child-friendly language. Since then the Space Scoop family has been joined by the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON), NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, Europlanet, the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS), the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) and now ESA. With all these new additions Space Scoop is publishing an ever-growing number of releases and has grown into the world's biggest and best resource for astronomy news for children.
For over 40 years the European Space Agency has been exploring the Universe using telescopes, probes and satellite. They've even sent humans into space. This new partnership will no doubt provide Space Scoop with an abundance of exciting new science stories.
