  • Probing the past - Most reliable remote distance measurement yet [heic1423]
    Using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope astronomers have made what may be the most reliable distance measurement yet of an object that existed in the Universe's formative years. The galaxy is one of the faintest, smallest and most distant galaxies ever seen and measuring its distance with this accuracy was possible due only to the incredibly detailed mapping of how giant galaxy clusters warp the space-time around them.
  • Cassini caught in Hyperion's electron beam
    Static electricity is known to play an important role on the airless, dusty Moon, but evidence of surface charging on other objects in the Solar System has been elusive. However, a new analysis of data from the international Cassini mission has revealed that the orbiter was briefly bathed in a beam of electrons coming from the electrostatically charged surface of Saturn's moon, Hyperion.
  • Name Rosetta mission's landing site
    ESA and its Rosetta mission partners are inviting you to suggest a name for the site where lander Philae will touch down on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 12 November.
  • ESA confirms the primary landing site for Rosetta
    ESA has given the green light for its Rosetta mission to deliver its lander, Philae, to the primary site on 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 12 November, in the first-ever attempt at a soft touchdown on a comet.
  • Lutetia's dark side hosts hidden crater
    Grooves found on Lutetia, an asteroid encountered by ESA's Rosetta spacecraft, point to the existence of a large impact crater on the unseen side of the rocky world.
  • Announcement of Opportunity for membership in the CHEOPS Science Team
    The Characterising ExOPlanet Satellite (CHEOPS) is a small mission in the ESA Science Programme. Proposals are solicited for membership in the CHEOPS Science Team. Scientists from institutions located in ESA Member States are invited to apply. The deadline for receipt of applications is 22 October 2014 (12:00 noon CEST).The deadline for receipt of applications in response to this AO has passed.
  • Call for a Medium-size mission opportunity in ESA's Science Programme for a launch in 2025 (M4)
    Through this Call for Missions the Director of Science and Robotic Exploration 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 (M4) for launch in 2025.
  • 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.
