Hubble detects supermassive black hole kicked out of galactic core - Astronomers suspect gravitational waves [heic1706]

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 16:00:00 UT

An international team of astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered a supermassive black hole that has been propelled out of the centre of the distant galaxy 3C 186. The black hole was most likely ejected by the power of gravitational waves. This is the first time that astronomers found a supermassive black hole at such a large distance from its host galaxy centre.

Before and after: unique changes spotted on Rosetta's comet

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 10:10:00 UT

Growing fractures, collapsing cliffs, rolling boulders and moving material burying some features on the comet's surface while exhuming others are among the remarkable changes documented during Rosetta's mission.

Collapsing cliff reveals comet's interior

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 08:35:00 UT

Rosetta scientists have made the first compelling link between an outburst of dust and gas and the collapse of a prominent cliff, which also exposed the pristine, icy interior of the comet.

ESA's Jupiter mission moves off the drawing board

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 16:07:00 UT

Demanding electric, magnetic and power requirements, harsh radiation, and strict planetary protection rules are some of the critical issues that had to be tackled in order to move ESA's Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer – JUICE – from the drawing board and into construction.

ESA Planetary Science Archive gets a new look

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 11:54:00 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.

Next step towards a gravitational-wave observatory in space

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 13:23:00 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 09:24:00 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.
