  • An explosive quartet - Hubble sees multiple images of a supernova for the very first time [heic1505]
    Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have, for the first time, spotted four images of a distant exploding star. The images are arranged in a cross-shaped pattern by the powerful gravity of a foreground galaxy embedded in a massive cluster of galaxies. The supernova discovery paper will appear on 6 March 2015 in a special issue of Science celebrating the centenary of Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity.
  • SOHO's 3000th comet - contest
    It may have been designed to probe and monitor the Sun, but the ESA/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) has also found fame as a comet finder. A record-breaking 2890 comets have been discovered with SOHO since its launch in 1995, more than any other comet hunter in history!
  • Announcement of Opportunity for Interdisciplinary Scientists in the JUICE mission
    Through this Announcement of Opportunity (AO) ESA solicits the participation of the scientific community in the role of Interdisciplinary Scientists (IDSs) in the JUICE mission. Proposals are due by 15 April 2015 at 12:00 CEST (noon) and shall be preceded by a mandatory Letter of Intent due by 20 March 2015.
  • Widespread wind from black hole can shape star formation
    Astronomers have discovered that the winds from supermassive black holes at the centre of galaxies are blasted out in all directions. This new finding was made possible by observations with ESA's XMM-Newton and NASA's NuSTAR X-ray telescopes and it supports the picture of black holes having a significant impact on star formation of their host galaxy.
  • Mystery Mars plume baffles scientists
    Plumes seen reaching high above the surface of Mars are causing a stir among scientists studying the atmosphere on the Red Planet.
  • Planck reveals first stars were born late
    New maps from ESA's Planck satellite uncover the 'polarised' light from the early Universe across the entire sky, revealing that the first stars formed much later than previously thought.
  • Joint Call for a Mission from the Chinese Academy Of Sciences (CAS) And The European Space Agency (ESA)
    The European Space Agency's (ESA) Directorate of Science and Robotic Exploration (ESA-SRE) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have agreed to jointly pursue a scientific space mission, to be implemented by the ESA Science Programme and the Chinese National Space Science Centre (NSSC) under the CAS. The present Joint Call for Missions solicits proposals for such mission from the scientific communities in the ESA Member States and in China. The proposal submission deadline is 16 March 2015, 12:00 (noon) CET/19:00 Beijing Time.
  • Rosetta instruments ready for action
    It's official, Rosetta instruments are ready for action! The Rosetta team had a commissioning 'close out' review on 13 May where each of the orbiter and lander instruments were given a formal 'go' for routine science operations.
  • No. 266 - Continuation of quadrature operations, temporary star tracker outage, start of the sixteenth occultation season, and entire thirteenth Atmospheric Drag Experiment Campaign
    Report for the period 13 October to 9 November 2013This reporting period covers four weeks of Venus Express operations. It includes the continuation of quadrature operations, a temporary star tracker outage, start of the sixteenth occultation season, continuation of the first sulphur dioxide campaign, and the entire thirteenth Atmospheric Drag Experiment Campaign.
  • No. 265 - End of the twenty-fifth eclipse season, continuation of the first sulphur dioxide campaign, start of quadrature operations
    Report for the period 15 September to 12 October 2013.This reporting period covers four weeks of Venus Express operations. It includes the end of the twenty-fifth eclipse season, continuation of the first sulphur dioxide campaign, and the start of quadrature operations.
  • Herschel Status Report - June 2013
    Report for period 3 June to 1 July 2013 On 17 June 2013 Herschel operations were concluded, following the last manoeuvre to deplete the spacecraft's fuel and the final passivation of the spacecraft. Herschel has been switched off and is in its final heliocentric orbit. The mission is now in its post-operations phase.
