The support of microfilmed aids guarantees the possibility for the users to reconstruct the history of ELDO, especially for the projects of "EUROPA Rockets Series" and for the winding financial history of the organisation. In fact, a large part of the documentation is related to the liquidation of ELDO. This Fonds has an interesting appendix of documentation, in particular for the activities of the Guiana centre in Kourou.
