Carbon source found on surface of Jupiter's moon Europa
Carbon, an essential component of life on Earth, is also present within Europa. The findings come from analyzing images from NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. Europa is believed to hold huge oceans of liquid salt water beneath its icy surface. Understanding the chemistry of this ocean could help determine if it is a good place for life as we know it.See the Story

Vega’s ESTCube-2 tether to the future
Estonia's next satellite will fly aboard Europe's Vega VV23 launcher later this week. The shoebox-sized ESTCube-2 has ambitious goals in mind, including surveys of Estonian vegetation and the first successful in-orbit demonstration of plasma brake technology. Deployment of a charged microtether will slow the CubeSat's orbit.See the Story

Earth from Space: Southern Patagonian Ice Field
Part of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field with its white glaciers and aquamarine lakes is featured in this Copernicus Sentinel-2 image from 10 January 2023. Straddling the border of Chile and Argentina, the ice field is one of the largest ice masses on Earth outside the polar regions. Satellite data can help monitor changes in glacier mass, extent and thickness.See the Story
Hera takes wing
ESA’s Hera asteroid mission for planetary defence seen with one of its two solar wings added, during its continuing test campaign at the ESTEC Test Centre in the Netherlands. Hera is scheduled for launch in October 2024, to rendezvous with the Didymos and Dimorphos asteroid system. The spacecraft's onboard thrusters will manoeuvre it through deep space to reach its destination just over two years later.See the Story

Vega's fuel-free CubeSats will use wings to keep in formation
Three shoebox-sized satellite will image Iberian waters as if they are a single standard-sized mission. They will unfurl wing-like flaps to maintain their relative positions, surfing on the scanty airflow at the top of Earth's atmosphere. Without onboard propulsion, the operational lifespan of an ANSER cluster will be limited to two or three years.See the Story
