Air quality: Take a deep breath


Air pollution has become a serious problem. According to the World Health Organization, seven million premature deaths per year are linked to air pollution. The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Services provide key information about air quality around the globe to help understand how we can keep our planet breathable.

Ice coverage - the global thaw


One of the causalities of climate change is the diminishing ice cover, affecting our planet in a number of ways. Our satellites observe the planet’s cryosphere and provide key information to understand and respond to global thawing.

Preparing for an Earth Observation satellite mission


Developing a space mission is a long process that involves a lot of tests, sometimes in harsh environments. An airborne campaign was recently carried out in the Arctic between Greenland, Iceland and Svalbard. Enduring temperatures of 30 degrees below zero, a team tested an airborne version of an imaging microwave radiometer to support the development of a potential satellite mission for Europe’s Copernicus programme.

Asteroid impact 2028: Protecting our planet


It’s the year 2028, and we've been carefully monitoring a worrying situation: an enormous asteroid is en route to strike Earth, although the exact point of impact is not yet clear.

National governments are planning to evacuate millions of people, an undertaking that will cause untold human misery and disruption on a gigantic scale. If the asteroid’s impact zone can be fixed, perhaps such chaos can be avoided.

As precious hours pass, find out how our Planetary Defence Office is able to obtain crucial information on this potential disaster as part of the Agency’s Space Safety and Security activities.

Back to the present day: Find out more about how we are preparing to protect our pale blue dot, its inhabitants and the vital satellite systems on which we have become so dependent.

EDRS-C final testing


In Ottobrunn, Germany, ESA’s laser satellite EDRS-C is undergoing final testing at Airbus before being shipped to the launch site in Kourou, French Guiana.

EDRS-C is the second node in the European Data Relay System, a unique public–private partnership between ESA and Airbus.

The system – dubbed the SpaceDataHighway by industry – provides data relay between low Earth orbiting satellites and the EDRS nodes over optical links, with the information sent down to Europe in near-real time.

Luca Parmitano training for second mission


This summer our astronaut Luca Parmitano will fly to the International Space Station from Baikonur Cosmodrome.

The Italian astronaut is currently training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, USA, where he is learning Space Station operations in depth.

His second mission is called 'Beyond' and includes a spacewalk and running a rich scientific programme as well as seeing Luca take over command of the International Space Station – only the third time a European astronaut holds this role.
