BepiColombo gets green light for launch site

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 10:00:00 UT

Europe's first mission to Mercury will soon be ready for shipping to the spaceport to begin final preparations for launch.

Announcement of Opportunity for European Participating Scientist Membership of the Science Team for the X-ray Astronomy Recovery Mission (XARM)

Tue, 06 Mar 2018 16:04:00 UT

The purpose of this Announcement of Opportunity (AO) is to solicit proposals for membership of the X-ray Astronomy Recovery Mission (XARM) Science Team as Participating Scientists. This AO is open to scientists affiliated with institutes located in ESA Member States.

INTEGRAL Announcement of Opportunity (AO-16)

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 13:56:00 UT

Proposals are solicited for observations with INTEGRAL in response to the Sixteenth Announcement of Opportunity, AO-16, issued 5 March 2018. This AO covers the period January 2019 to December 2019.

Donor star breathes life into zombie companion

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 08:35:00 UT

ESA's INTEGRAL space observatory has witnessed a rare event: the moment that winds emitted by a swollen red giant star revived its slow-spinning companion, the core of a dead star, bringing it back to life in a flash of X-rays.

Hubble observes exoplanet atmosphere in more detail than ever before [heic1804]

Thu, 01 Mar 2018 15:00:00 UT

An international team of scientists has used the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to study the atmosphere of the hot exoplanet WASP-39b. By combining this new data with older data they created the most complete study yet of an exoplanet atmosphere. The atmospheric composition of WASP-39b hints that the formation processes of exoplanets can be very different from those of our own Solar System giants.

Chasing a stellar flash with assistance from Gaia

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 09:22:00 UT

Last year, ESA's Gaia mission helped astronomers make unique observations of Neptune's largest moon, Triton, as it passed in front of a distant star. This is a preview of the superb quality and versatility of the Gaia data that will be released in April.

XMM-Newton spies first clear X-ray flares from massive stellar lighthouse

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 09:53:00 UT

In 2014, ESA's XMM-Newton spotted X-rays emanating from the massive star Rho Ophiuchi A and, last year, found these to ebb and flow periodically in the form of intense flares – both unexpected results. The team has now used ESO's Very Large Telescope to find that the star boasts a strong magnetic field, confirming its status as a cosmic lighthouse.

Cosmic Vision M4 candidate missions: presentation event

Fri, 05 May 2017 13:28:00 UT

ARIEL, THOR, and XIPE, the three candidates for the M4 medium-class mission in ESA's Science Programme, will be presented to the science community at a special event in Paris on 3 July 2017. The deadline to register for this event is 10 June.

ESA identifies new science ideas for future space missions

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 15:21:00 UT

Last year, ESA called on the scientific community to propose new and innovative science ideas that could be relevant for future space missions within the Science Programme. From the proposals that were received three key areas of interest have been selected for further investigation.
