ESA dixit:
“An expedition of astronauts, planetary scientists and engineers test equipment for space exploration in Spain’s Canary Island of Lanzarote, also known as the island of a thousand volcanoes. Pangaea-X is a test campaign that brings together geology, high-tech survey equipment and space exploration. For five days in November 2017, the course mobilizes 50 people, four space agencies and 18 organisations in five different locations.The crew is testing instrumentation, navigation, remote sensing, 3D imaging and geoscience equipment. The volcanic features of Lanzarote make it a unique setting with many geological similarities to the Moon and Mars.”
