The European Space Agency's Planetary Science Archive (PSA) is the central repository for all scientific and engineering data returned by ESA's Solar System missions: currently Giotto, Huygens, Mars Express, Rosetta, SMART-1, and Venus Express, as well as several ground-based cometary observations. The PSA uses NASA's Planetary Data System standards as a baseline for the formatting and structure of all data contained within the archive.

All of the contents is compatible with the Planetary Data System (PDS) standard. All of the data sets are peer reviewed and undergo an additional internal validation procedure.
