Sorry, I wasn't trying to be critical, and as a Canadian, I have no opinion about what the EU should prioritize. It just struck me that these 3 priorities are all defensive as opposed to reaching out to conquer new worlds. The in-orbit servicing definitely opens new fields.

At #CM22 @esa Member & Associate states have decided upon a great programme to achieve Europe’s #space ambitions. To this effect, we present Space for Education 2030, the evolution of our #STEM learning programme that is set to support & inspire young generations.

Fantastic news for the amazing #ESAVigil mission!!! 🛰️

This @esaoperations space mission will be a crucial element in our space-weather prediction capability.

... and that's far from being all!
We are also going to start preparing more space missions!
Among them is a reconnaissance mission to the asteroid 99942 Apophis, which will have a very(!) Close encounter with earth on Friday 13th of April 2029.
 
At first glance, the ESA's priorities for future missions don't seem very aspirational: defend, warn, remove.
Their in-orbit servicing for satellites, however, should cause upgraded and improved missions, though.
Replying to @WPenner3
These are the priorities of the #SpaceSafety programme: protecting Earth from asteroids, protecting infrastructure and space explorers from the Sun, and making space sustainable. We think these are vital, and aspirational! These are just a few projects. What would you add?

On 19 November, #asteroid #2022WJ1 became one of the many small asteroids to strike Earth, but only the sixth we ever saw coming. For the second time this year, humankind predicted an asteroid impact.

The ~1-m rock caused no harm, burning up in the Toronto sky as a striking fireball. The detection, warning and advance observations of this #asteroid illustrate our increasing ability to warn of asteroid impacts, however small. 📸Initial risk corridor from early observations

At ESA’s Council at Ministerial Level, #CM22, Member States have again invested in the backbone of the Agency, with an increase in funding of over €200 million for ‘basic activities’, up from €1 407 million to €1 629 million

But what’s ‘basic’ when it comes to space? It includes rocket launches, satellite testing and all that we do here at ESA #MissionControl - flying our missions in Earth orbit and across the Solar System, which all relies on mission #operations infrastructure, #SpaceOnEarth #CM22

We didn't get exactly what we asked, but we must put it in context. We received 10.3bn in 2016, 14.5 in 2019, and now 16.9bn at #CM22 representing a 17% increase in time of war, Covid, an energy crisis. A huge success, showing Europe's understanding that SPACE OFFERS SOLUTIONS.
 
The results are in.

Hello everyone! The world can be a frightening place, and sometimes things from space can seem a little scary too.

But tonight, I want to share with you a little story about asteroid 2022 WJ1—and how its detection may save future lives. ☄️

The future of Europe in space, + space in Europe, is being decided right now.

ESA's Council Meeting at Ministerial Level #CM22 is streaming live from Paris (📹esa.int/About_Us/Corpo…). It kicked off with a vital commitment: "Earth is ours. We must cherish it."

ESA and 20 other European space actors have come together to sign a “Statement for a Responsible Space Sector”.

Only 6 times, but this capability is rapidly improving?! Well I hope so! I thought we could move mountains in space or some crap now lol.. It would be nice too if the rest of us got a warning too.. Ok. You can’t warn everyone cause it’ll cause panic.. But you can tell me, right?!
Replying to @VoteRaoulDuke
We're monitoring 1000s of asteroids in the Solar System, (and know of almost all enormous "planet-killers" - none of which are a concern). The small ~1m asteroids strike Earth often, safely burning up in the atmosphere. They are, however, much harder to detect! #WorkingOnIt

Not all satellites are made equal... orbit-wise!

Some, like @esa_cryosat, have polar orbits: they travel past Earth from North to South.
Others, like the soon-to-be-launched #MTGI1, have a geostationary orbit: they circle Earth from west to east following Earth’s rotation.

There are some false reports doing the rounds of a very large asteroid, 2022 AP7, "certain" to strike Earth.

2022 AP7's orbit is well known 100 years into the future and it will not strike Earth or even make a close approach (atleast for a century.)
