The need for education in an ever-increasing knowledge based society is without question and education forms a fundamental part of the mandate of the European Space Agency (ESA). The Agency is conscious that it can play a significant role in contributing to a scientifically literate and aware society, and that it has both a responsibility and a vested interest in doing so. The International Space Station (ISS) Education Programme makes use of human spaceflight, and the ISS, as a means to capture the attention and the interest of students, to attract them to study, in particular, scientific and technical disciplines, and to appreciate and understand the benefits, challenges, and importance of space for Europe and as a member of a global economy.
