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

Wow - 120m - that's <mumble> almost 5 seconds of micro-gee! Twice if you launch it upwards first.

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.

The #Sentinel3 Earth observation satellite is now on the launch pad at Plesetsk cosmodrome ahead of the scheduled 16 February liftoff.
With four days to liftoff, the next Sentinel satellite for Copernicus is now on the launch pad at the Plesetsk cosmodrome in northern Russia. The rocket will be fuelled the day before the launch – set for 16 February at 17:57 GMT (18:57 CET).

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.

How about working with gravity propulsion?
