Some time around 1:20 p.m. European time on Friday, Rosetta will officially end its 12-year mission when the European Space Agency crash-lands it onto the surface of the comet it has been exploring. The mission has been history making, and a thrilling achievement of science and engineering. The probe was launched in March 2004 to track […]
On September 30, the European Space Agency (ESA) is going to reunite two star-crossed spacecrafts as it crashes its Rosetta space probe into Comet 67P, which it’s been orbiting for about two years. Back in 2014, this tortured love story gripped the world. Show More Summary
As the European Space Agency prepares to bring its most ambitious mission to an end, data gathered by the spacecraft will help scientists understand how Earth and other planets formed.
The spacecraft is to end its two-year examination of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko on Friday. Here is what the European Space Agency mission found out.
Rita Schulz says she was ‘shafted’ by management when she was dropped as lead scientist on Rosetta mission six months before its culmination A leading space scientist has accused the European Space Agency of having a “problem with promoting women” that has led to men holding almost every top job at the agency.

I was looking at photos of the Phobos monolith and I came across this 3D anaglyph of Phobos taken by the European Space Agency's Mars Express space probe. If you have a pair of red-blue 3D glasses, take a gander. It's incredible! Mars...Show More Summary
The European Space Agency (ESA) launched the Gaia spacecraft in 2013 with the aim of creating the most complete map ever of the Milky Way galaxy and other nearby objects. It began observing […]
The Milky Way just got a little more crowded. The European Space Agency’s Gaia spacecraft has mapped more than a billion stars in the galaxy with unprecedented accuracy and detail — and it has already discovered 400 million more previously unknown stars. The stellar trove of 1.142 billion stars,...
Jan Willem Tulp, in collaboration with the European Space Agency, produced the ESA Star Mapper. It shows nearly 60,000 stars in a combination of different scales and projections. Be sure… Tags: Jan Willem Tulp, space
ESA (the European Space Agency) has released a colossal star catalog detailing the precise positions and brightness of over a billion stellar bodies spread across the Milky Way. Created from data harvested by the agency's Gaia satellite,...Show More Summary
BYLINE: Patrick Jones Gaia is a craft from the European Space Agency which is dedicated to astrometry, and that in turn means it's going to map the heavens. If you're just finding out about the craft guess what, it's a great time to do so because it's published its first map of the milky way. Show More Summary
The European Space Agency [ESA] have released the most detailed map of the Milky Way galaxy to date, based on the first delivery of data from the ESA’s Gaia probe, which was launched in 2013. The map represents 1% of the Milky Way’sShow More Summary
The first data released from the European Space Agency’s star mapping space telescope will transform astronomy forever, expanding our view 1000-fold
Britain will stay in the European Space Agency when it leaves the EU, but will have to renegotiate terms to continue participating in certain projects, the ESA said Wednesday.
The map, based on observations from the European Space Agency’s Gaia probe, will transform what we know about the galaxy, say scientists Astronomers have unveiled the most detailed map to date of the Milky Way, after charting the positions of more than 1bn stars with stunning precision.

In the coming decades, the world's largest space agencies all have some rather big plans. Between NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), Roscosmos, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), or the China National Space Administration (CNSA), there are plans to return to the moon, crewed missions to Mars, and crewed missions to Near-Earth Objects (NEOs).
European Space Agency releases first data from Gaia star mapping mission.
The Gaia space probe, launched in December 2013, has mapped more than a billion stars in the Milky Way, vastly expanding the inventory of known stars in our galaxy, the European Space Agency said Wednesday. Released to eagerly waiting...Show More Summary
The European Space Agency will unveil on Wednesday a three-dimensional map of a billion stars in our galaxy that is 1,000 times more complete than anything existing today.
