  • Airbus logistics: from tiny fish to small whale – and now a bigger Beluga

    News | 18 Nov 2014 16:12 | Dan Thisdell

    ​Now that Airbus has pushed the “go” button to develop an A330-based successor to its fleet of five A300-600ST “Beluga” oversized transports, it’s a good time to look back on the critical role these distinctive aircraft have played in turning the dream of knitting French, German, Spanish and British aerospace manufacturers into a single company.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Airbus-logistics-from-tiny-fish-to-small-whale-and-now-a-bigger-Beluga-406205/
  • Comet update: Philae running on last scraps of battery power

    News | 14 Nov 2014 18:22 | Dan Thisdell

    ​Philae, the washing-machine-sized lander that the European Space Agency has successfully delivered to the surface of a comet, looks destined to complete just a fraction of its scientific agenda as it counts down the final hours before its batteries run out after an landing system malfunction left its solar panels in the shadow of one of 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko’s many irregular surface features.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Comet-update-Philae-running-on-last-scraps-of-battery-power-406103/

  • Scientific work on hold as ESA determines comet lander's condition

    News | 13 Nov 2014 16:08 | Dan Thisdell

    ​European Space Agency scientists have determined that their robotic lander Philae is on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, but it is not anchored as it should be and it is not sitting level. Philae, the washing machine-sized lander, may have come to rest on the steep rim of a crater after rebounding twice off the surface, following an initial touchdown near the centre of its planned landing site.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Scientific-work-on-hold-as-ESA-determines-comet-landers-condition-406026/
