An astronaut aboard the International Space Station (ISS) took a stroll around the Earth by proxy today, thanks to a new robotics system. A little after 11:30 am CEST (09:30 GMT), ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst took remote command of the humanoid robot Rollin' Justin at the DLR German Aerospace Center establishment in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. It was a two-hour test of the latest technolog
ESA is gearing up to light the blue touch paper this week on one of the largest solid rocket motors ever built. At the space agency's Spaceport in French Guiana, the first complete P120C rocket motor that will act as a booster for ESA's Vega-C and Ariane 6 rockets will be mounted on a static test stand, where 600 sensors will monitor the motor during its 135-second burn...

The European Space Agency (ESA) has completed a massive publicly-available archive of images and data collected over the course of the historic Rosetta mission. Rosetta and Philae captured almost 100,000 images during their 12-year mission to the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, revolutionizing our understanding of these icy celestial wanderers, and capturing the hearts and imaginations of
The European Space Agency (ESA) has announced three major space mission concepts it is now examining to fill the fifth medium class mission slot in its Cosmic Vision science program. The new missions under consideration include a next-generation infrared space telescope, a surveyor craft that seeks out transient high-energy events, and a new Venus orbiter...

For years, high-altitude unmanned aircraft and airships that can loiter on the edge of space have been under development, but who will use them when they come online? One major prospect is ESA, which sees these High Altitude Pseudo-Satellites (HAPS) as the "missing link" between drones and satellites that can remain on station longer than the former while providing better resolution than the
