The brilliant cascade of stars through the middle of this image is the galaxy ESO 318-13 seen by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. Although ESO 318-13 is the main focus of this image, it is sandwiched between a collection of bright stars near and far. One that stands out is an extremely bright star that looks like it is within the galaxy. This is a trick of perspective. The star is located...

Un scan de mon cerveau (scintigraphie cérébrale) effectué avant le départ pour l’espace. Les chercheurs s’intéressent de très près à son évolution à mon retour sur Terre ! Le projet BRAIN-DTI de l’ESA - European Space Agency étudie en coopération avec l’agence russe Роскосмос l’adaptation du cerveau à l’impesanteur. La recherche révèle comment il apprend de nouvelles choses – comme se mouvoir...

On this day: 26 May 1983, ESA's Exosat was launched on a US Delta 3914 rocket D169, from Vandenberg AFB, California. Exosat was operational from May 1983 to April 1986. During that time, the X-ray observatory satellite made 1780 observations of a wide variety of objects, including active galactic nuclei, stellar coronae, cataclysmic variables, white dwarfs, X-ray binaries, clusters of...

Wildfires break out in the boreal forests of eastern Russia most summers, but last year was particularly bad. This image from the Copernicus EU Sentinel-2A satellite was taken on 28 September 2016, and shows blazes that had plagued Russia’s Irkutsk Oblast since July. It is thought that drier conditions associated with warmer weather – with June 2016 being the hottest on record – contributed to...

One way to determine the number of larger impactors and the potential impact threat to Earth is to observe the Moon. Using a system developed under an ESA contract, the Greek NELIOTA project has begun to detect flashes of light caused by small pieces of rock striking the Moon's surface. NELIOTA is the first system that can determine the temperature of these impact flashes. The size and mass of...

On this day: 25 May 2012, a cargo variant of the SpaceX Dragon became the first commercial spacecraft to successfully rendezvous with and attach to the International Space Station. COTS2+ was the second Dragon demonstration flight. ESA astronaut André Kuipers and NASA astronaut Don Pettit used the Station's robotic arm to berth Dragon to the Earth-facing side of the station's Harmony node. [...

How can pipeline operators monitor hundreds to thousands of kilometres of pipeline in a fast and cost-effective way? Remote sensing is a powerful tool that allows large, remote, inaccessible areas to be examined. Satellites, such as the Sentinels of the Copernicus EU programme are excellent for detecting change. Images from these satellites greatly improve the viability of commercial...
