ESA is now training astronauts in identifying planetary geological features for future missions to the Moon, Mars and asteroids.

This Pangaea course – named after the ancient supercontinent – will help astronauts to find interesting rock samples as well as to assess the most likely places to find traces of life on other planets.

The course is organised together with the Center of Studies and Activities for Space at the University of Padova, Italy.
