Earth observation image of the week: a Sentinel-2 image of Rome and its surroundings, also featured on the Earth from Space video programme
Satellite radar scans of last year’s earthquake in New Zealand are changing the way we are thinking about earthquake hazards in regions where our planet’s tectonic plates meet.
Watch live from Friday 10:30 GMT (11:30 CET) as Thomas Pesquet and Shane Kimbrough leave the International Space Station on a spacewalk
Join us Friday, 24 March, at 10:00 CET for the ‘Earth from Space’ video programme.
Designers of future Moon missions and bases have to contend with a chilling challenge: how might their creations endure the fortnight-long lunar night? ESA has arrived at a low-cost way of surviving.
Operations image of the week: Engineers working in ESA’s control room in 1978
Technology image of the week: these small structures have been 3D printed out of simulated Mars dust
World Water Day reminds us of the need to treat and reuse wastewater. Satellites like Sentinel-2 provide key information on water quality

Thanks to the Swarm satellite trio, the most detailed magnetic map yet from space of Earth's rigid outer layer has been released
Rosetta scientists have made the first compelling link between an outburst of dust and gas and the collapse of a prominent cliff, which also exposed the pristine, icy interior of the comet.
While the world marks the International Day of Forests, satellites continue to monitor the long-term effects of human activities on our planet’s precious resources
ESA’s Swarm satellites are seeing fine details in one of the most difficult layers of Earth’s magnetic field to unpick – as well as our planet’s magnetic history imprinted on Earth’s crust.
After the relative quiet of the long dark winter months, the Arctic will be a tad busier over the coming weeks as numerous researchers descend on this harsh, yet fragile environment. Their aim is not to disturb its beauty, but to join forces in an all-out effort to measure ice on land and sea.
The notion of glitter might appear as somewhat frivolous, but scientists are using Sun glitter in images from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission to map the motion of the sea surface.
