The European Space Agency (ESA) and the Council of Lanzarote through the Lanzarote Geopark and Chinijo Archipelago have signed a collaboration agreement for the island to remain the natural scenery of the PANGAEA project (Planetary Analogue Geological and Astrobiological Exercise for Astronauts) . This agreement assumes that ESA researchers, scientists and astronauts will continue to explore and train in Lanzarote in an environment that transports them to a geological reality similar to what they will find in outer space.”

For those responsible for the European body Lanzarote meets the strategic conditions, geological and scenic which are ideal to carry out their training: It is the most realistic way available on earth to prepare for travel into space. Technical and human teams have been operating on the island during the last three years.
