In this week's images, taken on 20 July from a distance of 5500 km, comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko's largest features are beginning to stand out in the OSIRIS narrow angle camera view.
Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have mapped the mass within a galaxy cluster more precisely than ever before. Created using observations from Hubble's Frontier Fields observing programme, the map shows the amount and distribution of mass within MCS J0416.1-2403, a massive galaxy cluster found to be 160 trillion times the mass of the Sun. The detail in this mass map was made possible thanks to the unprecedented depth of data provided by new Hubble observations, and the cosmic phenomenon known as strong gravitational lensing.
Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have probed the extreme outskirts of the stunning elliptical galaxy Centaurus A. The galaxy's halo of stars has been found to extend much further from the galaxy's centre than expected and the stars within this halo seem to be surprisingly rich in heavy elements. This is the most remote portion of an elliptical galaxy ever to have been explored.
This week's images of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko reveal an extraordinarily irregular shape. We had hints of that in last week's images and in the unscheduled previews that were seen a few days ago, and in that short time it has become clear that this is no ordinary comet. Like its name, it seems that comet 67P/C-G is in two parts.
A new analysis of data from the ESA/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft has revealed that comet 2012/S1 (ISON) stopped producing dust and gas shortly before it raced past the Sun and disintegrated.
The scientific community is invited to submit proposals for participation to the Cassini-Huygens mission through the Participating Scientists (PS) programme.
This Announcement of Opportunity (AO) is issued jointly by ESA, NASA, and ASI.
A brief statement of work is due on 28 July 2014; the full proposal is due on 26 September 2014.
The scientific communities in Europe and China are invited to present their ideas about a joint scientific mission at the 2nd ESA-CAS workshop that will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 23-24 September, 2014.
It's official, Rosetta instruments are ready for action! The Rosetta team had a commissioning 'close out' review on 13 May where each of the orbiter and lander instruments were given a formal 'go' for routine science operations.
Report for the period 13 October to 9 November 2013This reporting period covers four weeks of Venus Express operations. It includes the continuation of quadrature operations, a temporary star tracker outage, start of the sixteenth occultation season, continuation of the first sulphur dioxide campaign, and the entire thirteenth Atmospheric Drag Experiment Campaign.
Report for the period 15 September to 12 October 2013.This reporting period covers four weeks of Venus Express operations. It includes the end of the twenty-fifth eclipse season, continuation of the first sulphur dioxide campaign, and the start of quadrature operations.
Report for period 3 June to 1 July 2013
On 17 June 2013 Herschel operations were concluded, following the last manoeuvre to deplete the spacecraft's fuel and the final passivation of the spacecraft. Herschel has been switched off and is in its final heliocentric orbit. The mission is now in its post-operations phase.
