Caption: Esrange Research Centre, near Kiruna, Swedish Lapland. This site, which is owned by the Swedish Space Corporation (SSC), part of the European Space Agency, comprises a research centre and two launch sites. The launch sites are used for sounding rockets and stratospheric balloons, both of which collect meteorological and other data from the Earth's atmosphere. The research centre collects these data (via the satellite seen here) as well as that from ground based instruments. The site also provides aerospace testing services for new technical systems.
