European Space Agency released a short film in 2014 to hype the Philae landing.
An underground cave is precisely the wrong direction if you’re hoping to go into space—so why is the European Space Agency sending the latest batch of ISS-bound astronauts on a spelunking expedition? To practice for life in a sealed tin can, of course. Read more...
When you spend a lot of time and effort to send a spacecraft to another planet, it’s a nice benchmark when that spacecraft first spots it. The image above is Mars, as seen by the Trace Gas Orbiter, part of the European Space Agency’s...Show More Summary
“Which images from our age will endure? Will they be Turner prize-winning artworks, or will they be pictures such as those taken by the European Space Agency’s Planck satellite, which launched in 2009 and over the next four years collected the first light in the universe?”
While the European Space Agency has centers in many different countries, the beating heart of the Europe’s space program is here in the unassuming town of Noordwijk in the western Netherlands. This remote sciencetown is where the future...Show More Summary

New satellite data from the European Space Agency has revealed some puzzling findings: the Earth's magnetic field appears to be weakening much faster than previous research would suggest. These measurements show that on the whole, the planet's geomagnetic field is weakening about ten times faster than expected, at a rate of about 5% every decade. Show More Summary
As a research doctor with the European Space Agency, Beth Healey spent a year at their Concordia base in Antarctica – also known as ‘White Mars’. Read our interview with her there

The European Space Agency has posted a detailed new video tour of the International Space Station (ISS).
This week, the European Space Agency released an extensive narrated tour of the International Space Station. It's available in both 3D and 2D versions.
Satellite data from the European Space Agency have revealed that the Earth’s magnetic poles are weakening, and doing so faster than scientists previously thought. From Mysterious Universe: Chris Finlay, one of the researchers with the...Show More Summary
New data released by the European Space Agency reveals that Earth’s magnetic poles are weakening much faster than was previously thought. The data was collected by the ESA’s Swarm satellites, a set of three orbital satellites designed to track the strength, direction and variations of the Earth’s...
Over the past few months, five fashion schools have been working with the European Space Agency to find out what happens when space-age technologies and materials collide with couture design. The results, shown here, were unveiled at the London Science Museum yesterday. Read more...
You’re looking at a half-scale model of the European Space Agency’s appropriately adorable-sounding Mascot-2 asteroid lander. Come 2022, a device like this will give us an unprecedented glimpse into what it’s like on an asteroid. Read more...
The European Space Agency is dreaming up an aircraft of the future: egg-shaped, electric-powered and able to take off from helipads or runways due to its pivoting engines. In a press release earlier this month, the ESA said the new plane, which would h... via JustLuxe.com
NASA and European Space Agency officials on May 19 said the European Service Module (ESM) for NASA’s Orion crew-transport vehicle was within budget and on schedule for a late-2018 inaugural flight pending a key review.But the ESM program...Show More Summary
