ESA Planetary Science Archive gets a new look

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 12:54:00 UT

Today, ESA launches a new version of its Planetary Science Archive (PSA) website, the online interface to data from the agency's space science missions that have been exploring planets, moons and other small bodies in the Solar System. With a new design and enhanced search functionalities, the platform now provides a direct and simple access to the scientific data, helping scientists to discover and explore the archive content.

Festive nebulae light up Milky Way Galaxy satellite [heic1623]

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 12:06:00 UT

The sheer observing power of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope is rarely better illustrated than in an image such as this. This glowing pink nebula, named NGC 248, is located in the Small Magellanic Cloud, just under 200 000 light-years away and yet can still be seen in great detail.

Rosetta's last words: science descending to a comet

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 13:40:00 UT

On 30 September 2016, at 11:19:37 UTC in ESA's mission control, Rosetta's signal flat-lined, confirming that the spacecraft had completed its incredible mission on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko some 40 minutes earlier and 720 million km from Earth. Rosetta was working up to the very end, collecting reams of science data as it descended towards a region of pits in the Ma'at region on the comet's 'head'.

LISA Pathfinder's pioneering mission continues

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 16:30:00 UT

On 7 December, LISA Pathfinder started the extended phase of its mission, an additional six months during which scientists and engineers will push the experiment to its limits in preparation for ESA's future space observatory of gravitational waves.

New evidence for a warmer and wetter early Mars

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 09:09:00 UT

A recent study from ESA's Mars Express and NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provides new evidence for a warm young Mars that hosted water across a geologically long timescale, rather than in short episodic bursts – something that has important consequences for habitability and the possibility of past life on the planet.

Two-year extensions confirmed for ESA's science missions

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 14:36:00 UT

ESA's Science Programme Committee (SPC) has today confirmed two-year mission extensions for nine scientific missions in which the Agency is participating. This secures their operations until the end of 2018.

Next step towards a gravitational-wave observatory in space

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 14:23:00 UT

Today, ESA has invited European scientists to propose concepts for the third large mission in its science programme, to study the gravitational Universe.

The LISA Pathfinder Science Archive is online

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 10:24:00 UT

Today, ESA's LISA Pathfinder Science Archive opens its virtual gates to the world. It contains data collected by the satellite during the mission's first few months, covering the nominal operations phase of the LISA Technology Package (LTP) – the European payload on LISA Pathfinder.

Cosmic explosions: the first ESA–Ars Electronica residency

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 10:48:00 UT

Aoife van Linden Tol, an artist working primarily with explosive media, is the recipient of the first art&science@ESA residency, organised by Ars Electronica in partnership with ESA.
