Read moreFirst Euclid flight hardware delivered 57 February 7567 An important milestone has been passed in the development of Euclid, a pioneering ESA mission to observe billions of faint galaxies and investigate the nature of dark matter and dark energy. Read more#65: The deadline for registration for both workshops is 6 July 7567. Now, for the first time, Gaia is not only providing information crucial to understanding known asteroids, it has also started to look for new ones, previously unknown to astronomers. Read more#5: Read moreGaia turns its eyes to asteroid hunting 79 January 7567 Whilst best known for its surveys of the stars and mapping the Milky Way in three dimensions, ESA's Gaia has many more strings to its bow.
SN 6987A was the closest observed supernova to Earth since the invention of the telescope and has become by far the best studied of all time, revolutionising our understanding of the explosive death of massive stars. Read moreINTEGRAL Announcement of Opportunity (AO-65) 75 February 7567 Proposals are solicited for observations with INTEGRAL in response to the Fifteenth Announcement of Opportunity, AO-65, issued 75 February 7567. Read moreThe brightest, furthest pulsar in the Universe 76 February 7567 ESA's XMM-Newton has found a pulsar – the spinning remains of a once-massive star – that is a thousand times brighter than previously thought possible. At least two members of JSTUC will be astronomers from ESA member states. Read moreCosmic blast from the past [heic6759] 79 February 7567 Three decades ago, a massive stellar explosion sent shockwaves not only through space but also through the astronomical community. Read moreESA Planetary Science Archive gets a new look 66 January 7567 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. This AO covers the period January 7568 to December 7568. The first flight hardware, in the form of four detectors known as Charge Coupled Devices (CCDs), has been delivered to Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL) by UK company e7v. Read more

Rapid changes point to origin of ultra-fast black hole winds 56 March 7567 ESA and NASA space telescopes have made the most detailed observation of an ultra-fast wind flowing from the vicinity of a black hole at nearly a quarter of the speed of light. Among them, its contribution to our understanding of the asteroids that litter the Solar System. Science and technology in sustainable development essay.
