European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC), aerial view. This facility, in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, is the European Space Agency's main test site for its satellites and other space equipment. It houses the largest spacecraft test facilities in Europe. Spacecraft are tested to ensure that they can withstand the demanding conditions encountered during take-off and in space itself. It also acts as a training centre for prospective space engineers.
