Abstract : We present the scientific motivation for future space tests of the equivalence principle, and in particular the universality of free fall, at the 10^-17 level or better. Two possible mission scenarios, one based on quantum technologies, the other on electrostatic accelerometers, that could reach that goal are briefly discussed.
