Before leaving Earth a decade ago, ESA’s comet-chaser Rosetta underwent a full evaluation at ESA’s Technical Centre – the largest space test facility in Europe.

Before leaving Earth a decade ago to journey 800 million km from the Sun, ESA’s comet-chasing mission Rosetta underwent a full test campaign at ESA’s Technical Centre in the Netherlands, the largest spacecraft testing facility in Europe.

Earth's satellites. It just makes me wonder why we need so many of them.

Saturn eclipsing the sun, with the Earth visible in the upper left section of Saturn's rings

Saturn eclipsing the sun, with the Earth visible in the upper left section of Saturn's rings. In NASA's robotic Cassini spacecraft drifted in Saturn's shadow for about 12 hours and Cassini saw a view unlike any other. The rings light up so much tha

On Oct 19, 2014, a comet had a near miss with Mars. Comet C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring) passed closer to the red planet than any comet has ever passed to Earth in recorded history. Taking advantage of this unique opportunity to study the close interaction of a comet and a planet, humanity currently has five active spacecraft orbiting Mars. These and the two active rovers on the Martian surface have taken data and images that will be downloaded to Earth and likely studied for years…

The European Space Agency (ESA) has said its GOCE (Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer) research satellite will crash to Earth on Sunday night or during the day on Monday, but debris is unlikely to cause any casualties.

NASA Creates Cool Flames on the International Space Station: Great Balls of Fire! by scienceworld: While a flickering flame on Earth looks like a teardrop, though, in microgravity it forms a ball, or sphere. Now, NASA has studied fire in space a bit further--and has made some surprising findings. (Photo : NASA) #Fire #Space #ISS
