Mission 21 lands satellite account

Satellite specialist Astrium, the UK arm of space company EADS Astrium, has ­retained Mission 21 to raise awareness of space technology and its role in monitoring climate change.

The company shot to fame in 2003 after designing and building the Beagle 2 Mars Lander, which failed to land successfully.

The brief is to raise awareness of the importance of space to the economy and to encourage those aged 16 to 25 to consider a career in space technology. It will promote the use of satellites in monitoring climate change.

The account will be headed by creative director Richard Knight and account director Kirsten Robinson. They will report in to Astrium’s UK director of comms Jeremy Close.
