Italy has been making important investments in space since 1960s. The first European country, the third in the world, to launch scientific satellites, Italy was one of the founding countries of the European Space Agency (1975) and now it is the third contributor to ESA (European Space Agency). Established in 1988, ASI is a Governmental Agency for promotion, development and diffusion of scientific and technological research in the fields of space and aerospace, as scientific observation and exploration of the universe, earth observation, telecommunications and navigation, microgravity and education. Important is the contribution to the International space station, where a relevant part of the habitable volume of the orbiting platform has been mainly built in Italy.
