In this edition, we explore two saline lakes in East Africa with Copernicus Sentinel-2
Japan braces for strong winds and torrential rain as Typhoon Hagibis approaches
European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Luca Parmitano is preparing to step out into space for his first spacewalk of the Beyond mission.
The International Space Station is open for business and ESA is calling on industry to help extend the capabilities of Europe’s Columbus laboratory to support science and technology in space beyond 2024.
Mars may seem to be an alien world, but many of its features look eerily familiar – such as this ancient, dried-up river system that stretches out for nearly 700 kilometres across the surface, making it one of the longest valley networks on the planet.
Watch Nobel laureate Michel Mayor’s seminar about exoplanets Thursday 10:30–11:30 CEST live from ESA’s European Space Astronomy Centre
For an astronaut looking out of the International Space Station windows, city lights are brighter than the stars. To tackle light pollution citizen scientists are urged to help map out the problem on their smartphones by identifying images of cities taken from space.

As we pump more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the world is warming at an alarming rate, with devastating consequences. While our vast oceans are helping to take the heat out of climate change, new research shows that they are absorbing a lot more atmospheric carbon dioxide than previously thought – but these positives may be outweighed by the downsides.
On 6 October, 9 159 people visited ESA's technical heart in the Netherlands to meet astronauts, space scientists and engineers
