Esrange Space Center is a research centre and rocket range, which was built in 1964 by ESRO. In 1972, however, the ownership of the centre was transferred to the Swedish Space Corporation. Its ideal location, amidst vast wilderness 200km north of the Arctic Circle, makes it perfect for observing the aurora borealis, rocket launches, satellite tracking, etc. The space centre also holds public tours where visitors get to see live action at the launch pads and research labs.
