A Hitchhiker's Guide to Astrobiology

Abstract:
Tapping into the enthusiasm and expertise of Europe's academia, ESA along with Alcatel Alenia Spazio in Italy released a "Call for Innovative Concepts and Technologies" in October 2005 that was focused on human lunar exploration. The aim was to draw on innovative ideas in Europe for an assortment of fields from in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) to nanotechnology. The funded studies looked at technologies that could become an important part of ESA's own Aurora exploration programme.
