ESA kosmose uudised
ESA seeks your ideas for applying space technology to Earth-based problems. Through the Open Space Innovation Platform, a new challenge-based website, the Agency is hunting out bright ideas to monitor plastic waste polluting the oceans, and to improve the self-steering abilities of ships.
ESA aims to harness a new resource for future space activities: ideas from European researchers, businesses and the general public. Through its new Open Space Innovation Platform (OSIP), anyone is welcome to respond to space-related challenges.
Our week through the lens:
8-12 April 2019
This week's edition features the busy maritime traffic passing through the English Channel
On Thursday 18 April, you are cordially invited to view the final presentations of ESA’s second Galileo smartphone app competition – to develop an app capable of performing fixes using raw Galileo satnav measurements – as well as put your own vote in for your favourite.
Spain’s PLD Space, supported by ESA, has demonstrated the technologies for a reusable first stage of their orbital microlauncher, Miura 5.
The discarded ‘upper stage’ from a rocket launched almost ten years ago has recently crumbled to pieces.

ESA's 35-m deep space antenna in Malargüe, Argentina, has had a major refurbishment, getting it ready for the launch of Euclid in 2022 and able to transfer even greater quantities of 'space data'...
Our future mission Plato, due to launch in 2026, will use highly sensitive light detectors to monitor the brightness of thousands of stars in search of Earth-sized planets
ESA and Arianespace are giving full support to European institutional customers to launch their missions on Ariane 6 and Vega-C.
New evidence of the impact of the recent planet-encompassing dust storm on water in the atmosphere, and a surprising lack of methane, are among the scientific highlights of the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter’s first year in orbit.

After only one year in space, the Atmosphere-Space Interactions Monitor (ASIM) on the International Space Station has given researchers a new understanding of how lightning is created, and how thunderstorms can affect the atmosphere and the climate.
Today’s interconnected world is ever more vulnerable to cyberattacks, emphasising the importance of secure encryption to protect Europe’s critical infrastructure and communications. An agreement forged today between the European Commission and the European Space Agency marks the first steps towards creating a highly secure, pan-European quantum communication infrastructure.

When we think of climate change, one of the first things to come to mind is melting polar ice. However, ice loss isn’t just restricted to the polar regions. According to research published today, glaciers around the world have lost well over 9000 gigatonnes (nine trillion tonnes) of ice since 1961, raising sea level by 27 mm.
