"Understanding Gravity" Final Report
Gravity is a fundamental force that, in addition to its physical importance underpins many human activities – particularly those undertaken in Space. In spite of its crucial role, it is one of the least well-understood forces. Thus it is both a key concept in Physics while having application in a range of important practical areas including time measurement, navigation and the properties of Earth and other planets.
The ESA High-level Science Policy Advisory Committee (HISPAC), an advisory body that reports to the Director-General, has defined a number of Grand Science Themes and Cross-cutting Enabling Technologies. Understanding Gravity is one of four science themes and the committee suggested to held this Forum (3/4 December 2013) to enable a wide-ranging discussion of this topic.

Europe's 50-Year Space Odyssey
These days, the space sector is all around us – in navigation and telecommunications, for example – yet Europe’s space sector is only 50 years old. That past half century has been a roller-coaster ride of rockets and satellites, and this edition of Space tells that story.
