  • We are now accepting abstract submissions for next year's Living Planet Symposium #LPS19! All info here:


  • Last year scientists studying three decades of #ozone measurements from seven satellites saw a positive trend in global recovery. Read more about the ozone layer's ups and downs here:


  • Measurements of #ozone for the first half of this September over #Antarctica from the Copernicus EU #Sentinel-5P satellite - the new kid on the 'Earth observation from space' block...  Thankfully, the 1987 Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer led to the phase-out and controlled use of damaging substances, which has, in turn, allowed the ozone layer to heal significantly. But, while the ozone layer may be healthier than it was, it is critical that we continue to monitor it – not just to look back at its history, but also to see how it changes in the future. See


  • 'Aeolus: a space movie' is finally out! No need to go to your nearest cinema though, just sit back and click play! This timelapse video shows ESA’s #Aeolus satellite being prepared for liftoff. It includes shots from the cleanroom in France, its arrival by ship in French Guiana, preparations at Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, roll out to the launch pad and, finally, liftoff on a Vega rocket on 22 August 2018 (Directed and realised by ESA- S. Corvaja; realised and edited by M. Pédoussaut/Zetapress; music by Hubrid - GALACTIC)


  • #Iris flight trials for safer air traffic - testing a new satellite-based air-to-ground communication system for Air Traffic Management that will make #aviation industry operations more efficient.


  • Jump aboard the @Copernicus EU #Sentinel-1 satellite for a tour of #EarthFromSpace: this Friday we fly over the Afar region in Ethiopia.

  • An update on the choreography the A68 iceberg has been doing since calving from the Larsen C ice shelf last July. For more than a year the iceberg never left its parent ice shelf’s side but strong winds blowing from Larsen C have finally given it the push it was waiting for. Read more:

  • This striking film has been shortlisted for the 2018 #Beazley Designs of the Year exhibition at the Design Museum, London. It's ESA's ‘Space debris – a journey to Earth’ video that takes viewers on a voyage from the outer Solar System back to our home planet, passing some of the thousands of now defunct human-made objects that surround it. Congratulations to all behind it! See


  • Ever wanted to run your own experiment in space? Then you’re in luck! ESA Education, in collaboration with the @Raspberry Pi Foundation, is pleased to announce the launch of the 2018/2019 European #AstroPi Challenge! Here's Alexander Gerst to kick off!


  • Calling all members of the European space community! Share your passion about space through #SpaceTalks, a series of grassroots talks and events for the general public. Find out more:


  • The summer holidays might be over but you can still travel the world... with our #EarthFromSpace weekly episodes! Today we fly over northern Europe, come with us!


  • Remember the famous hexagon at #Saturn's north pole? A new study based on #Cassini data has revealed a similarly-shaped vortex high up in the planet's atmosphere, suggesting the hexagon is a towering structure hundreds of kilometres high... See
