  • Hubble nets a cosmic tadpole [heic1612]
    This new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows a cosmic tadpole, with its bright head and elongated tail, wriggling through the inky black pool of space. Tadpole galaxies are rare and difficult to find in the local Universe. This striking example, named LEDA 36252, was explored as part of a Hubble study into their mysterious properties – with interesting results.
  • Announcement of Opportunity for the operations and scientific exploitation of the SPICE instrument on board the Solar Orbiter mission
    This Announcement of Opportunity (AO) solicits proposals for the provision of the operations and scientific exploitation of the SPICE instrument on board the Solar Orbiter mission. The AO is open to scientists from the Member States of ESA.
  • LISA Pathfinder completes first operations phase
    On Saturday 25 June, the LISA Technology Package (LTP) – a European payload on ESA's LISA Pathfinder – completes its nominal operations phase, passing the baton to the Disturbance Reduction System, an additional experiment provided by NASA. This won't be the last time the European experiment is run – the recently approved mission extension will see the LTP back in action for seven months starting in November this year.
  • Venus has potential – but not for water
    ESA's Venus Express may have helped to explain the puzzling lack of water on Venus. The planet has a surprisingly strong electric field – the first time this has been measured at any planet – that is sufficient to deplete its upper atmosphere of oxygen, one of the components of water.
  • LISA Pathfinder exceeds expectations
    ESA's LISA Pathfinder mission has demonstrated the technology needed to build a space-based gravitational wave observatory.
  • Rosetta's comet contains ingredients for life
    Ingredients regarded as crucial for the origin of life on Earth have been discovered at the comet that ESA's Rosetta spacecraft has been probing for almost two years.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
