Catching the world in a box


#engineering #esa #europeanspaceagency #science #space #technology




The rapid evolution of Egypt’s Nile Delta over the last four years, as viewed from ESA’s Proba-V microsatellite. Think of it as a small token of our love for planet Earth: just a cubic metre in size, Proba-V maps land cover and vegetation growth across the entire world every two days.

Astronaut photography benefiting the planet

When astronauts take photographs of our planet while orbiting 400 km above our heads, they are doing much more than just taking pretty pictures. They are looking after the health of our planet and, ultimately, us too.

EarthCARE mission to improve weather forecasts


#earth #esa #europeanspaceagency #science #space

Bild/Foto

Earth observation satellite data are crucial for generating accurate weather predictions. They provide a global picture of the current state of the atmosphere, which is used as the starting point for creating a forecast. But our knowledge of that current state is limited, partly because satellites have so far not been able to collect much information about clouds, which play a key role in the weather. The ESA/JAXA future mission EarthCARE will provide this information to improve our predictions about the future weather and climate.

Project Pextex: materials for lunar spacesuits


#esa #europeanspaceagency #human #science #space

Bild/Foto

On 17 January 2019 ESA signed a study contract with Comex and its partners DITF and OeWF. Pextex is a two-year project to identify materials and textiles that could be used for future lunar mission space suits.

The project aims to develop solutions that could be based on existing space suit materials, but also identify novel types of textiles with self-healing functions or repulsing lunar dust and smart textiles for example.

ESA probing into post-silicon, wide bandgap landscape


#engineering #esa #europeanspaceagency #science #space #technology

Bild/Foto

What comes next after silicon? Some seven decades from the invention of the silicon chip this question is often asked, especially in the space sector: demands for extreme high performance have highlighted silicon’s inherent limitations, raising interest in a new range of ‘wide bandgap’ semiconductor materials.

Swarm helps pinpoint new magnetic north for smartphones


#esa #europeanspaceagency #news #science #space

Bild/Foto

Since it was first measured in 1831, we have known that the magnetic north is constantly on the move. However, its tendency to slowly roam has stepped up a pace recently – so much so that the World Magnetic Model has had to be updated urgently with the pole’s new location, vital for navigation on smartphones, for example. ESA’s magnetic field Swarm mission has been key for this update.
