We're used to seeing space launches from the ground, but when the Russian Progress MS-10 cargo spacecraft lifted off on November 16, 2018 from Baikonur cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst aboard the International Space Station (ISS) had the best seat in the house. Orbiting 400 km (250 mi) above the Earth, Gerst captured a time-lapse video of the ascending Soyuz rocket as
Michael Gallagher is leaving his post as the CEO and president of the Entertainment Software Association after over a decade with the organization ...
ESA researchers are looking at lunar dust as a raw material for making bricks to build habitats for future manned outposts on the Moon. Using "simulants" that mimic the properties of actual Moon dust, the goal is to determine if the gray, fine, rough-edged dust that covers the lunar surface is suitable for making habitats, roads, launch pads and other installations...

An astronaut aboard the International Space Station (ISS) took a stroll around the Earth by proxy today, thanks to a new robotics system. A little after 11:30 am CEST (09:30 GMT), ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst took remote command of the humanoid robot Rollin' Justin at the DLR German Aerospace Center establishment in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. It was a two-hour test of the latest technolog
ESA is gearing up to light the blue touch paper this week on one of the largest solid rocket motors ever built. At the space agency's Spaceport in French Guiana, the first complete P120C rocket motor that will act as a booster for ESA's Vega-C and Ariane 6 rockets will be mounted on a static test stand, where 600 sensors will monitor the motor during its 135-second burn...

The European Space Agency (ESA) has completed a massive publicly-available archive of images and data collected over the course of the historic Rosetta mission. Rosetta and Philae captured almost 100,000 images during their 12-year mission to the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, revolutionizing our understanding of these icy celestial wanderers, and capturing the hearts and imaginations of
The European Space Agency (ESA) has announced three major space mission concepts it is now examining to fill the fifth medium class mission slot in its Cosmic Vision science program. The new missions under consideration include a next-generation infrared space telescope, a surveyor craft that seeks out transient high-energy events, and a new Venus orbiter...

While ion thrusters are a promising propulsion method for future spacecraft, their working life is limited by the amount of propellant they can carry. Now, scientists at ESA have test-fired a new type of "air-breathing" electric thruster that could keep satellites aloft for longer and reduce drag at the same time, by making them literally run on thin air...Continue Reading ESA test-fires elec
