In the Maxwell Test Chamber, Nobody Can Hear This Satellite Scream

If this satellite looks a little lonely, that’s because it is. It’s positioned inside the European Space Agency’s Maxwell chamber —which blocks out all electromagnetic radiation and silences every sound. Good preparation for space, then. Read more...

Rosetta’s comet displays rarely seen water ice on its surface

3 weeks agoHealth : The Checkup

Using data from the European Space Agency's Rosetta orbiter, scientists have confirmed the existence of patches of exposed water ice on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This marks the first time water ice has made a bold appearance on the comet's surface, and it could help scientists puzzle out some of the comet's origin story.Read full article >>

Another Rosetta first! Water ice found on the surface of comet 67P

For the first time, scientists have spotted large patches of water ice on the surface of a comet, thanks to instruments aboard the European Space Agency's Rosetta orbiter. The finding, published Wednesday in Nature, solves a long-standing mystery about water ice in comets. Scientists already knew...

Philae Comet Lander May Not Send Back Data Anymore

Last year the European Space Agency sent a lander on Comet 67-P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko but the mission didn’t really go according to plan. The Philae comet lander suffered a rather bumpy landing and it first went quiet and then went into sleep marking the end of its communication with Earth. Show More Summary

Scientists are making a last-ditch attempt to contact the Philae comet lander

3 weeks agoHealth : The Checkup

It's been a bumpy ride for the European Space Agency's Philae lander. The little robot made history in November 2014, making the first controlled landing onto the surface of a comet. An unstable touch-down threw the lander into shade, preventing it from fully charging its batteries. Just days later, the mission team lost contact.Read full article >>
