NASA and the European Space Agency already have countless proposed and tentative plans to further explore Mars and potentially even land humans on the planet within a couple of decades, but they're not the only ones eyeing up the red planet as a location for a possible settlement. Show More Summary
Expedition 53 Flight Engineer Paolo Nespoli of the European Space Agency (ESA) photographed cloudy skies over Sudan during an International Space Station flyover on Oct. 22, 2017.
It is extremely rare for comets to be seen simultaneously from two different locations in space, and these are the most comprehensive parallel observations of comet 96P yet. The ESA (European Space Agency) and NASA mission SOHO -- short for...
The ESA (European Space Agency) and NASA mission SOHO—short for Solar and Heliospheric Observatory—got a visit from an old friend this week when comet 96P entered its field of view on Oct. 25, 2017. The comet entered the lower right corner of SOHO's view, and skirted up and around the right edge before leaving on Oct. Show More Summary
Launched March 2004 and following a 10-year journey across the solar system, the European Space Agency's Rosetta probe made history in 2014. It became the first spacecraft to orbit the nucleus of a comet—a frozen remnant of the pristine material from which the solar system formed—and later land on its surface. Show More Summary
When the European Space Agency (ESA) launched a satellite into orbit on Oct. 13, it did so despite opposition from Inuit leaders in Canada and Greenland over its potential to contaminate an important Arctic area.
It took a full year’s worth of satellite data to make it.
The European Space Agency (ESA) last week launched an advanced air-pollution-monitoring satellite. The 1,800-pound Sentinel-5P was carried into orbit Friday from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Russia. Its mission (which it had no choice […] The post European Satellite Monitors Air Pollution in High-Def appeared first on Geek.com.
With an Australian space agency on everyone's mind, we chatted to the European Space Agency's Director General about how we got here, what's next and why space agencies matter.
In a collaboration between Les Chevaliers du Ciel (The Knights Of Heaven), the European Space Agency (ESA), and noveSpace (a company that operates a vomit comet), a group of disabled kids got to experience weightlessness, accompanied by ESA astronauts. Show More Summary
The European Space Agency (ESA) teamed up with Novespace and Rêves de Gosse on August 24th, 2017 to allow a group of disabled children and adults to experience what it was like for astronauts to float in space. As part of their “Kid’s Weightless Dreams” flight, they brought five ESA astronauts along with the excited...
Europe is set to launch a satellite Friday dedicated to monitoring Earth's atmosphere, the protective layer that shields the planet from the sun's radiation, the European Space Agency said.
In 2015, European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Andreas Mogensen was onboard the International Space Station (ISS), photographing the tops of thunderstorms from Earth orbit. And he saw something very interesting indeed.
The Rêves de Gosse association, together with the European Space Agency (ESA) and Novespace, helped to provide children with disabilities the opportunity to experience weightlessness and lunar gravity on aircraft flights.
The European Space Agency (ESA) has some good news and bad news for extraterrestrial enthusiasts. The good news is that a molecule thought to be a biomarker for life has been found for the first time in abundance in a comet and around a young star. Show More Summary
On September 30, 2015, the Rosetta spacecraft slowly drifted to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov -- Gerasimenko, ending a wildly successful 12-year mission. Scientists from the European Space Agency thought they had recovered all of...Show More Summary
Setting up a permanent village on the moon is the first step towards exploring Mars, the European Space Agency said Thursday as plans to reach and colonise the Red Planet gathered pace.
In September 2006, the European Space Agency's first lunar mission, SMART-1, came to an end when the probe was deliberately crashed into the surface of the Moon. The exact location of the craft's final resting place wasn't known, but...Show More Summary
Observations of the moon have revealed the final resting place of the European Space Agency's first lunar mission, SMART-1. The spacecraft was sent into a controlled impact with the lunar surface 11 years ago. Although an impact flash...Show More Summary
