Portugal part of European consortium created to monitor space



Portugal is part of a European consortium created to monitor space. Portugal’s participation was formalized this week and announced by the Ministry of Defence.

An operations centre is to be created in the Azores for the project, named European Space Surveillance and Tracking.

It aims to look out for objects orbiting near earth, which could pose a real threat to the planet and to citizens.
