Recording of signal coming from student-built CubeSat OUFTI-1 which, as part of ESA's Education 'Fly Your Satellite!' programme, was launched on 25 April 2016 on the Soyuz VS14 flight from the European Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana.
In a live space-to-ground test of humanrobot cooperation, ESA astronaut Tim Peake will control a rover on Earth on Friday from the International Space Station, helping prepare for future exploration missions.
For three student teams, the dream of building and working on a real space mission is coming true. A trio of student-built CubeSats were released into space as part of ESA's Education Office 'Fly Your Satellite!' programme.
Biologists around the world routinely perform gene expression analysis to better understand living systems.
The path for humans to Mars could be paved by University at Buffalo students.
Testing has started at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, on a concept for a potentially revolutionary propulsion system that could send spacecraft to the edge of our solar system, the heliopause, faster than ever before.
Led by GomSpace in Denmark, GomX-3 is a 3-unit CubeSat mission to demonstrate aircraft ADS-B signal reception and geostationary telecommunication satellite spot beam signal quality using an L-band reconfigurable software-defined radio receiver.
Applications are now open for U.S. colleges and universities to compete for free CubeSat rides on United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rockets.
Once upon a time, only world superpowers could launch satellites. Now university students can do it as well!
NASA has awarded $30,000 each to the five top-scoring teams that competed in the latest segment of the agency's small satellite Cube Quest competition.
Less than a century ago, astronomers relied entirely on ground-based observations to further scientific study.
Progress continues on the journey to Mars as NASA plans to send astronauts deeper into space than ever before, including to an asteroid and ultimately to the surface of Mars.
The Innovative Technology Partnerships Office (ITPO) at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, invites educators, students and the general public to celebrate Pi Day and discover Pi-Sat.
NASA is not often known for making the best use of existing COTS (commercial off the shelf technology) aboard the ISS. Then again, sometimes they are. This is an example of when the agency really grabs cutting edge biotech and sends it into space.
Liquid Robotics, the pioneer of wave and solar powered ocean robots, today announced that its fleets of Wave Gliders have reached 1 million nautical miles at sea -- an important milestone for the unmanned surface vehicle (USV) industry.
Mini-computer Astro Pi isset up aboard the International Space Station and is looking out the window.
ESA Education is inviting university student teams to submit proposals related to designing, building and flying their experiment in a parabolic flight campaign, which is tentatively scheduled to take place in autumn 2017.
Following the success of the 'Astro Pi' competition, there is a new competition offering UK school children the chance to send their computer code to ESA astronaut Tim Peake on the International Space Station (ISS).
The first flight of NASA's new rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS), will carry 13 CubeSats to test innovative ideas along with an uncrewed Orion spacecraft in 2018.
On Jan. 18, 2016, the GRIPS balloon team sent their instrument soaring towards the stratosphere above Antarctica, suspended underneath a helium-filled, football-field sized scientific balloon.
