Expect new images and first science results from coming Thursday, 23 May. Five new stunning images, first ten science papers plus five reference publications.

There will be broadcast by as well as press and paper releases by ESA and us. Stay tuned!

Uh oh. The ambitious European-Japanese BepiColombo mission to Mercury has experienced a worrisome "glitch" in its thrusters.

Engineers are scrambling for a fix so the spacecraft can enter orbit around Mercury late next year, as planned.

BepiColombo got some enticing previews of Mercury during its 2021 flyby of the planet.

These images come from the spacecraft's little monitoring camera. The real ones (assuming the spacecraft pulls through) will be far more spectacular.

I honestly can't wait for the LISA observatory to launch.

What is ? It's a physics experiment and an space mission 🛰️ - but foremost it's a project imagined, designed, built, and operated by more than 2000 scientists, engineers, and technicians 👩‍🔬 👨‍💻 👩‍🔧.

We are now starting a series of -posts showcasing a cross-section of the people behind

First up:

Valeria Pettorino, ESA Euclid Project Scientist

I totally love what the is able to see, such as this new and exciting image of the Horsehead Nebula, where you can see loads of galaxies.

Absolutely amazing!

The image from even contains a very detailled description, and metadata in the AVM format, which my NeoFinder for macOS software of course catalogs, displays, and allows you to search.

Fascinating!

...because, all you need in the run up to launch is an old, WWII era bomb scare!
Well done the entire team!
