  • ANALYSIS: On Asteroid Day, take a minute to look skyward

    News | 06 Feb 2015 14:47 | Dan Thisdell

    ​Anybody inclined to look at deep-space exploration mission proposals and their associated budgets and ask “why?” could do worse than consider the problem of so-called Near Earth Objects; that’s jargon for big chunks of rock that orbit the Sun – until they actually hit us. As long as they are out in space, call them asteroids; once they get so near as to be visible streaks of light in the sky, call them meteors – enjoy the spectacle and, for good measure, take cover.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-On-Asteroid-Day-take-a-minute-to-look-skyward-407507/

Sorry, space people, but nobody is going to Mars.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/FORECAST-In-space-nobody-can-hear-you-on-Mars-407093/
  • 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/
