Trying to measure sea levels around rugged coastlines is not always an easy task. But now ESA’s #CryoSat satellite is making a difference with its radar altimeter by setting a new stanard for measuring sea levels.

#SpaceScience image of the week is of Hadley Rille on the #moon . This strangely meandering channel, carved on the Moon, is one of the most famous features on our nearest celestial neighbour. It shot to fame in July 1971 when the two astronauts of Apollo 15 drove their lunar rover to its very edge.

Hadley Rille is thought to have been carved by an ancient lava flow, dating back just over 3 billion years to soon after the Moon formed. It stretches more than 120 km, up to 1500 m wide and more than 300 m deep in some places.

+Hubble Space Telescope image of the week captures the remnants of a long-dead star. These rippling wisps of ionised gas, named DEM L316A, are located some 160 000 light-years away within one of the Milky Way’s closest galactic neighbours — the #LargeMagellanicCloud (LMC).

+Hubble Space Telescope​ and all this crazy, always fascinates me more and makes me even more to know than the 160,000 light years away what you see, very interesting good job.

Robots are an essential companion to mankind in space, and many of the modern-day masters of these robots are to be found in Montreal, home to the +Canadian Space Agency - this month's ESA Euronews Space programme recently visited to find out more. #robotics #space

Europe is more than just the EU, +Alex. Please check your facts before writing such stupidity.
Switzerland and Norway are also not a member of the EU but are in ESA.
ESA isn't the Space Agency of the European Union but is a Pan-European space organisation.
Besides, like +Zephyr López Cervilla already said, there are more english speaking countries in Europe and English is understood by most other people.
