  • BepiColombo launch moved to 2017
    The launch of BepiColombo, an ESA mission to explore the planet Mercury in collaboration with the Japanese space agency, JAXA, is now planned to take place during a one month long window starting on 27 January 2017.
  • Planck scientists awarded prestigious EPS Edison Volta Prize
    Three scientific leaders of ESA's Planck mission have been awarded the 2015 EPS Edison Volta Prize for outstanding contributions to physics. The prize acknowledges the crucial roles of Nazzareno Mandolesi, Jean-Loup Puget and Jan Tauber in directing the development of the Planck payload and the analysis of its data. The Planck mission has provided the most precise picture of the early Universe to date.
  • Dark matter even darker than once thought - Hubble explores the dark side of cosmic collisions [heic1506]
    Astronomers using observations from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have studied how dark matter in clusters of galaxies behaves when the clusters collide. The results, published in the journal Science on 27 March 2015, show that dark matter interacts with itself even less than previously thought, and narrow down the options for what this mysterious substance might be.
  • How black holes clear galaxies of star-making gas
    Astronomers have found proof that the strong winds blown by a supermassive black hole are dispersing the gas reservoir of its host galaxy. The new finding relies on the observation of two related phenomena in the same galaxy: a large-scale galactic outflow, seen by ESA's Herschel space observatory, and a black-hole driven wind at the galaxy's core, detected with the Japanese/US Suzaku X-ray observatory. By showing how the black hole wind is in fact driving the gas outflow that affects the entire galaxy, the discovery demonstrates the key role played by black holes in regulating the formation of stars in their host galaxies.
  • Rosetta makes first detection of molecular nitrogen at a comet
    ESA's Rosetta spacecraft has made the first measurement of molecular nitrogen at a comet, providing clues about the temperature environment in which Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko formed.
  • Symposium announcement: Exploring the Universe with JWST
    The 49th ESLAB symposium will be an international meeting dedicated to the presentation and discussion of future scientific research that will be enabled by the James Webb Space Telescope. This "Exploring the Universe with JWST" symposium will be held at the European Space Agency's technical centre (ESTEC), 12-16 October 2015.
  • Workshop announcement: CHEOPS Science Workshop #3
    CHEOPS Science Workshop #3 will be held at the headquarters of the Spanish Centre for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) in central Madrid, Spain, on 17-19 June 2015. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 1 April 2015.
  • 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.
  • 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.
