The graphic showcases the current state of ESA’s astronomy missions, including collaborative missions with partner agencies and concepts for future missions.

These missions have been probing a wide range of processes in the Universe, enabling astronomers to tackle big questions such as the origin and evolution of our Universe and the fundamental laws that govern the cosmos.

Three missions in a raw are  dedicated to extrasolar planets: CHEOPS, PLATO and ARIEL, which will be launched, respectively, in 2019, 2026, and 2028.

More information about these projects can be found on the respective web pages on the ESA website.
