?Recent observations made by the Hubble Space Telescope and the European Southern Agency’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) have revealed something unexpected: the mass distributions within and around four distant colliding galaxies are not as they should be. Show More Summary

Rosetta’s comet is ‘remarkably non-magnetic’

3 days agoHealth : The Checkup

Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the object that the European Space Agency's Rosetta orbiter is currently studying, doesn't seem to have any magnetic activity. That suggests that magnetic pull wasn't an important factor in the formation of our solar system's comets and planets. The findings were published Tuesday in Science.Read full article >>

Back in August the world watched in wonder as the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft made the first-ever rendezvous with a comet after an extraordinary mission which saw the probe go into and be taken out of hibernation. At this...

Comet dust sends Rosetta into safe mode

Modern deep space probes may be among the most sophisticated pieces of hardware the 21st century can produce, but that doesn't mean they aren't susceptible to the age-old problem of dust. The European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta space probe was thrown into safe mode recently when it was unable to take a simple star fix due to comet dust... Show More Summary

Beagle 2, Lost on Mars a Decade Ago, Has Been Found

In late December 2003, the European Space Agency’s Mars Express spacecraft entered orbit around the red planet. Part of the mission was to send a lander, the Beagle 2, down to the surface to study the geology and other conditions at a site where water was known to have existed long ago. Things didn’t go as planned. Show More Summary

How ion thruster technology will power future NASA missions

For its crazy 2020 asteroid capture mission and other projects, NASA is developing next-gen "Hall effect thrusters" to corral an asteroid and put it into the moon's orbit. At the same time, the European Space Agency (ESA) is trying to improve its own Hall thrusters to power future missions. Show More Summary

No word from the Philae lander until April at the earliest, Rosetta scientists say

3 weeks agoHealth : The Checkup

It's been months now since the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft, currently orbiting Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, dropped its little lander Philae onto the surface and made history. Just days after its bumpy landing -- the first controlled landing of any manmade object on a comet -- Philae disappeared.Read full article >>

Green Europe

This may be a little early for St. Patrick’s Day, but that’s OK: Europe isn’t really going green. At least, not this green. This astonishing image is from the European Space Agency Proba-V satellite, a small Earth-observing sat that monitors vegetation (that’s what the V is for in its name!) across the entire planet.

The PROBA2 Satellite Captures Extreme Ultraviolet Images of a Total Solar Eclipse

4 weeks agoHumor / odd : Laughing Squid

PROBA2, a mini-satellite operated by the European Space Agency, recorded today’s total solar eclipse from its vantage point in low earth orbit. The images were captured by the satellite’s SWAP imager, an instrument for recording extreme ultraviolet images of the sun. The total solar eclipse was also pretty impressive as seen from earth. image via […]

Today's Solar Eclipse From Space

4 weeks agoLGBT / Gay : Joe. My. God.

Grey skies blotted out today's solar eclipse for many Europeans who were in the right place to observe it, but the European Space Agency has provided a brief time-lapse from its Proba-2 satellite. Today's eclipse is especially rare as it took place on the vernal equinox during a "supermoon." And that means the end times have begun, of course. Show More Summary
