* ''VideoGame/{{Redout}}'' features the ESA-AGR racing team, founded as a branch of the ESA for testing prototype aircrafts during the Mars colonization. They were key players in the foundation of the SRRL, and according to the lore they are far and away the strongest SRRL team, with crafts that tend to have [[JackOfAllStats very balanced stats]].

* TheSpaceRace: Back in the 1950s and 1960s, Edoardo Amaldi, one of the founders of ESA's predecessor organizations, argued that it would be unwise in the face of the successes of the US and USSR to not develop a domestic European launch capability, for both scientific and economic purposes.

* Regrettably, in the 2007 ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' movie, the ''Beagle 2'' lander [[http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/Beagle_2_Rover is presented as]] ''[[WeAllLiveInAmerica an American]]'' probe, created by UsefulNotes/{{NASA}}. Worse yet, it's outward appearance is ''[[TheyJustDidntCare completely different]]'', more like that of the ''[[CriticalResearchFailure Spirit]]'' [[CriticalResearchFailure and]] ''[[CriticalResearchFailure Opportunity]]'' [[CriticalResearchFailure rovers]]. According to the film, the Decepticons were probably behind the probe's infamous malfunction, but it's kept rather vague.

* ''Once upon a time...'', a series of short, storybook-style cartoons about ''Rosetta'' and ''Philae'', made for ESA. [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbyvawxScNbui_Ncl9uQ_fXLOjS4sNSd8 Watch them here]]. The cartoon counterparts of the probe and its lander are the very definition of {{adorkable}}. Their "grandfather" ''Giotto'' also makes an appearance in a flashback to 1986 in one of the later episodes, where it's also revealed that he himself is the NarratorAllAlong. Other famous cometary probes also make cameo appearances in the flashback. The cartoon's final episode was aired shortly after the end of the Rosetta mission. A look behind the scenes is available [[http://www.capjournal.org/issues/19/19_12.pdf here]].
