My report on comet sinkholes and the latest moves to talk to Philae.
Rosetta space scientists are to try a new approach to get their spacecraft talking to its revived lander Philae on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

My report on the discovery that volcanoes are probably active on Venus.
Volcanoes appear still to be active on the surface of Earth’s neighbouring planet Venus, scientists have discovered, thanks to observations by ESA's Venus Express spacecraft.

My report of the fantastic news that Philae has woken from hibernation on Comet 67P. #Rosetta  
Space scientists got the news they had desperately been hoping for today when their comet lander Philae finally woke up and phoned home.

My report on this kerfuffle, up here at #NAM2015!
Two astronomers made the controversial claim today to have detected evidence for life on the comet being studied by Europe’s Rosetta space probe. But their report was immediately met with general skepticism.

My report for +sen on the ongoing efforts to get Rosetta and Philae talking properly.
Space scientists’ joy at renewing contact with their comet lander Philae has turned to frustration over efforts to establish a stable connection between the probe and its mothership Rosetta.

Here's my report on this morning's ESA briefing on Rosetta and Philae at the Paris Air Show.
Rosetta’s little lander Philae is in good health and ready to start work immediately, the operations engineer responsible for the reawakened probe said today.

What's in a name? Or in this case, label. My blog for Sen subscribers this week comes with a free Shakespearian quote.
Pluto was demoted from planet to dwarf planet in 2006. But it remains just as interesting as before, regardless of how it is labelled.

Have ESA found Rosetta's missing lander, Philae? My report for Sen.
Rosetta scientists say they may have located their lost lander Philae on the rugged surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. They are studying a bright spot that was not there before the landing, but has been pictured more than once since.
