A NASA scientist's final scientific paper, published posthumously this month, reveals new insights into one of the most complex challenges of Earth's climate: understanding and predicting future atmospheric levels of greenhouse gases and the role of the ocean and land in determining those levels.
A remote, boggy stretch of land on the north coast of Scotland - A'Mhoine Peninsula in Sutherland is set to become the UK's first spaceport.
The goal of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) is to provide access to climate indicators, indexes and models to develop scenarios-based adaptation and mitigation measures. The Climate Data Store (CDS), launched on 14 June, simplifies the process of sharing authoritative climate data. At the heart of C3S, the newly released CDS will provide users with a single and centralised point-of-access to climate data from around the world.

It was a wow! moment. The world's biggest berg, a block of ice a quarter the size of Wales, fell off the Antarctic exactly a year ago. But what then?
A new study uses Earth as a stand-in for an exoplanet, and shows that even with very little light - as little as one pixel - it is still possible to measure key characteristics of distant worlds.

A team of researchers, supported under ESA's Basic Activities, has recently investigated a resourceful new method of monitoring space weather. They analysed data from spacecraft magnetometers typically used for attitude control — so-called "platform magnetometers"— to see if these devices could also be used to investigate the impact of solar storms on the magnetic field around Earth.

This week marks 20 years since the manifesto was signed that gave rise to Europe's Copernicus environmental programme. With seven Sentinel satellites already in orbit delivering terabytes of data every day, Copernicus is the biggest provider of Earth observation data in the world.
The RemoveDEBRIS satellite has been deployed from the International Space Station (ISS) via Nanorack's commercially developed Kaber Microsatellite Deployer (Kaber) - and became the largest satellite to ever be deployed from the ISS to date!

The ESA Council met today in Paris to discuss the path towards the future exploitation of Ariane 6.
Australia's national science agency today announced a new research centre focused on collecting and analysing data about Earth from space.
Antarctica is shedding ice at an accelerating rate. Satellites monitoring the state of the White Continent indicate some 200 billion tonnes a year are now being lost to the ocean as a result of melting.
