New 3D models of Rosalind Franklin’s landing site aid preparations for the rover’s mission on Mars
There is plenty of science on the boil at the International Space Station – including an experiment literally designed to expand our knowledge of the boiling process.
Space Science Image of the Week: Bursts of gas from defrosting ice create the dark patches in this martian dune field
Meet AstroGnat our new crew member! She’s on a voyage of discovery in space and you too can explore this new AstroGnat collection for kids in the ESA Space Shop.
On the sidelines of ESA’s Φ-week, a five-day app-development bootcamp took place where young developers came together to solve big industry challenges using Earth observation data. The teams developed app prototypes, which were tested...
Our week through the lens: 9 - 13 September 2019
Earth observation image of the week: Copernicus Sentinel-1 takes us over Baja California, in northern Mexico
ESO’s VISTA telescope reveals a remarkable image of the Large Magellanic Cloud, one of our nearest galactic neighbours. VISTA has been surveying this galaxy and its sibling the Small Magellanic Cloud, as well as their surroundings, in...
Astronomers have spotted an object that looks likely to be a very rare visitor from outside our Solar System. If confirmed, this unusual body would be only the second interstellar object ever detected passing through our...
Hubble finds water vapour on habitable-zone exoplanet for the first time, paving the way for future discoveries by the James Webb Space Telescope and the Ariel mission
A few months from now will see the launch of the first European satellite to demonstrate how onboard artificial intelligence can improve the efficiency of sending Earth observation data back to Earth. Dubbed ɸ-Sat, or PhiSat, this...
ESA’s X-ray space telescope XMM-Newton has detected never-before-seen periodic flares of X-ray radiation coming from a distant galaxy that could help explain some enigmatic behaviours of active black holes.
Technology image of the week: Models of ESA’s current ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter and forthcoming ExoMars Rover will be on show during our 6 October Open Day
Six astronauts, five space agencies and a fresh start into underground worlds to help prepare for living on other planets. ESA’s latest training adventure will equip an international crew with skills to explore uncharted terrains on...
Human and robotic exploration image of the week: The Multiscale Boiling experiment on the International Space Station starts generating bubbles
There may not be an obvious connection between rewilding and machine learning, but as highlighted today at ESA’s ɸ-week, a project in the Netherlands uses satellite data and new digital technology to understand how a nature reserve...
