This month's 48th International Paris Air Show will celebrate its 100th anniversary -- the first Paris Air Show was held in 1909 at the city's Grand Palace.
The 2009 event at Le Bourget Airport runs June 15-21, with more than 200 000 visitors expected to attend, the European Space Agency said.
The ESA said it will participate with a 5,382-square-foot pavilion located between full-size models of the Ariane 1 and Ariane 5 rockets.
The ESA said visitors to its pavilion will learn about the latest European space program's scientific achievements such as robotic exploration, space hardware, navigation and telecommunications.
ESA astronauts, including the new class of six ESA "rookies," will meet visitors to the pavilion June 16.
