  • Call for a Medium-size mission opportunity in ESA's Science Programme (M5)
    Through this Call for Missions the Director of Science solicits from the broad scientific community proposals for the competitive selection of mission concepts to be candidate for the implementation of a medium-size, or M-class, mission (M5).
  • Powerful winds spotted from mysterious X-ray binaries
    ESA's XMM-Newton has discovered gas streaming away at a quarter of the speed of light from very bright X-ray binaries in two nearby galaxies.
  • Profile of a methane sea on Titan
    Saturn's largest moon is covered in seas and lakes of liquid hydrocarbons – and one sea has now been found to be filled with pure methane, with a seabed covered by a sludge of organic-rich material, and possibly surrounded by wetlands.
  • Space Microscope to test universality of freefall
    France's Microscope satellite, carrying a set of ESA high-tech thrusters, lifted off last night from Europe's Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, taking advantage of the same Soyuz launch that took the EU's Sentinel-1B into orbit.
  • New Herschel maps and catalogues reveal stellar nurseries across the Galactic Plane
    ESA's Herschel mission releases today a series of unprecedented maps of star-forming hubs in the plane of our Milky Way galaxy. This is accompanied by a set of catalogues listing hundreds of thousands of compact sources that span all phases leading to the birth of stars in our Galaxy. These maps and catalogues will be very valuable resources for astronomers, to exploit scientifically and for planning follow-up studies of particularly interesting regions in the Galactic Plane.
  • Hubble captures birthday bubble [heic1608]
    This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image, released to celebrate Hubble's 26th year in orbit, captures in stunning clarity what looks like a gigantic cosmic soap bubble. The object, known as the Bubble Nebula, is in fact a cloud of gas and dust illuminated by the brilliant star within it. The vivid new portrait of this dramatic scene wins the Bubble Nebula a place in the exclusive Hubble hall of fame, following an impressive lineage of Hubble anniversary images.
  • Calling all artists: apply now for art and science residency
    ESA, in partnership with Ars Electronica, is announcing art&science@ESA, a new art residency to explore the fertile ground between art and space science.
  • Support for PhD students to attend fourth CHEOPS Science Workshop

  • Second Announcement of Opportunity for Science Planners in the NASA-led IRIS mission
    This 2nd Announcement of Opportunity (AO) solicits proposals for participation in the NASA-led IRIS mission from scientists working in the ESA Member States, under the form of Science Planners. Proposals are due by 4 May 2016, 12:00 (noon) CEST.
  • Announcement of Opportunity for new science ideas in ESA's Science Programme
    This Call solicits proposals for the competitive selection of new science ideas, to be investigated in terms of feasibility and needed technology developments. The deadline for the submissions of proposals is 14 September 2016, at 12:00 (noon) CEST. Proposals must be preceded by a mandatory Letter of Intent to be received by 9 May 2016, at 12:00 (noon) CEST.
