Dozens of #Euro2016 matches are being beamed via satellite to television sets and phones all over the world this summer. But did you know that there is a technology, based on internet and satellite, that allows even a small #football club to live stream their games and target a new audience? Find out more in this month's ESA +euronews (in English) Space.

#SpaceScience image of the week is this test version of the parachute that will slow the #Schiaparelli entry, descent and landing module as they plummet through the martian atmosphere on 19 October. The full-scale qualification model, pictured here, was used to test the pyrotechnic mortar deployment and the strength of the parachute in the world’s largest wind tunnel, operated by the US Air Force at the National Full-Scale Aerodynamic Complex in +NASA's Ames Research Center, California.

No. Look up near earth objects, and you'll find a list that will show you its distance

Various countries in the Mediterranean Sea were captured last 10 May by the Sentinel-3A satellite, in this false-colour image. Parts of Greece, Turkey and Libya are featured, showing their distinct relief differences. In the middle of the image is the Greek island of Crete, dominated by harsh mountains rising out of the sea.

Realizing that one can play games with spectrum, with specialized filtration and other means...to enhance colors or detail... but is the Amazon really that muddy for its entire length ??

With #ExoMars half way to its destination, instruments on board are performing health checks. #Schiaparelli , the entry, descent, and landing module, has reported good health.

This ESA/NASA +Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the interior of one of the most active galaxies in our local neighbourhood — NGC 1569. It is a starburst galaxy, meaning it is bursting at the seams with stars and is currently producing them at a rate far higher than that observed in most other galaxies. For almost 100 million years, NGC 1569 has pumped out stars over 100 times faster than the #MilkyWay!

We usually send them 400 km up, but next week ESA will be sending six astronauts 800 m underground into the rocky caves of Sardinia, Italy. The caving course recreates aspects of a space expedition with an international crew and has become an essential part of ESA’s astronaut training.
This year’s #CAVES2016 participants are ESA astronaut Pedro Duque, NASA astronauts Jessica Meir and Richard Arnold, Japanese astronaut Aki Hoshide, Chinese astronaut Ye Guangfu and cosmonaut Sergei Korsakov.

Comet #67P  in close up never fails to amaze. Look at the detailed quality, courtesy of the #OSIRIS camera aboard #Rosetta . This image was taken on 11 June from a distance of 29km.
