ESA Education has selected two teams to throw their experiment down a 120meter vacuum tube in the name of science. Students from Queen Mary’s Microgravity Team (QMMT – Queen Mary University of London, UK) and System for Tether Automatic Retrieval experiment (STAR – University of Padova, Italy) will head to Bremen this autumn to participate in ESA’S 8th Drop Your Thesis! campaign. #DropYourThesis #Education

15 months after #Philae made its historic landing on a comet, its legacy is enormous even if #Rosetta’s lander is facing eternal hibernation.

#Rosetta is still listening, but the #Philae lander is facing difficult conditions down on Comet 67P - latest status report....

“The chances for Philae to contact our team at our lander control centre are unfortunately getting close to zero,” says Stephan Ulamec, Philae project manager at the +DLR, German Aerospace Center. “We are not sending commands any more and it would be very surprising if we were to receive a signal again.”

Time to say goodbye... :'(
Silent since its last call to mothership Rosetta seven months ago, the Philae lander is facing conditions on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko from which it is unlikely to recover.

On 16 February 2016 at 18:57 CET (17:57 GMT), Sentinel-3A will be launched on top of a Rockot from the Russian Plesetsk Cosmodrome. This satellite will be the third Sentinel for the Copernicus Programme. Copernicus is the most ambitious Earth Observation programme to date.... find out more in this video:

ESA is thrilled to learn that gravitational waves have been detected, and is looking forward to starting its mission to test technologies that could extend the study of these exotic waves to space.

This year ESA education has selected three teams to bring their experiments to another gravity level in the name of science. The campaign will take place from 5 to 16 September 2016 at the Large Diameter Centrifuge facility located at ESA's European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. #SpinYourThesis #Education

Scientists will soon be wearing safety trackers from a Belgium start-up company while working on Earth’s southernmost continent.

'Berlin, we have a problem' - latest update from Floris van den Berg on life as the ESA-sponsored MD at the #Concordia research station on #Antarctica.
Tweet “Okay, Berlin, we’ve had a problem here.” Concordia 2016 Taken from ESA-sponsored medical doctor in Antarctica Floris van den Berg's personal blog: People often refer to Concordia as the “White Mars”, and not just because of the harsh winter extremes, but also due to its remote location. It is completely inaccessible for nine months a year, and in the three summer months that it is possible to travel here, it’s still quite a journey before ...
