For more than 20 years, changes in ozone over Antarctica have been carefully monitored by a succession of European satellites. This important long-term record is now being added to by the Copernicus Sentinel-5P mission, which is dedicated to atmospheric monitoring.
A look back on preparations for the 22 August liftoff of ESA’s Aeolus wind satellite
Our week through the lens:
10 - 14 September 2018
In this week's edition, explore northeast Ethiopia with Sentinel-1
Earth observation image of the week: Sentinel-1 takes us over Semera in northeast Ethiopia
Imaged by Sentinel-1, the huge A68 iceberg was forced to stay close to its parent for more than a year. Strong winds have now allowed it to make a bid for freedom
Have you sent us your idea yet? ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti sends a video thank you to those who've entered our Lunar 3D printing competition. What would you 3D print, to make the Moon feel like home?
Technology image of the week: Terahertz detectors on show by one of more than 850 companies attending ESA’s Industry Space Days
Views of Hurricane Florence taken by ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst from the International Space Station
Just one week after ESA’s Aeolus satellite shone a light on our atmosphere and returned a taster of what’s in store, this ground-breaking mission has again exceeded all expectations by delivering its first data on wind – a truly remarkable feat so early in its life in space.
Human and robotic exploration image of the week: Pangaea field trip in Germany
Space Science Image of the Week: It’s been a year since Cassini ended its mission at Saturn, but Hubble still checks in on the ringed planet and its moons from time to time
Our week through the lens:
3 - 7 September 2018
In this week's edition, Sentinel-3A takes us over the North Sea
Operations image of the week: a soft Tuscan sunset hints at the presence of the powerful Sun beneath the horizon, a star that can affect satellites in orbit and critical civil infrastructure on Earth
Do you have a great idea for new space transportation services – to space, around space or returning? Send it in this week and create a commercial success with advice from ESA
Following the launch of Aeolus on 22 August, this extraordinary satellite’s instrument has been turned on and is now emitting pulses of ultraviolet light from its laser, which is fundamental to measuring Earth’s wind. And, this remarkable mission has also already returned a tantalising glimpse of the data it will provide.
Technology image of the week: this fireball-detecting camera is mounted at the highest point of ESA’s technical centre in the Netherlands
Human and robotic spaceflight image of the week: Alexander Gerst during safety drill on the International Space Station
You are on a rock speeding through space. On this rock called Earth every single mineral tells you something about planetary formation. This week astronauts and space engineers will unlock the mystery of those minerals as they start an ESA geology field training course to prepare for future exploration of the Moon, Mars and asteroids.
