  1. Things We Saw Today: That’s No Moon

    In space, no one can rear you scream.

    Boy, this image of Comet 67P that was taken by the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft looks like something, but I can't put my finger on just butt it is. Err, what it is. Go check out some more details on the ESA website.

  2. Cute European Space Agency Animation Shows Philae Impatiently Asking Rosetta “Are We There Yet?”

    How about now? Now? Are we there now? How about now?

    The ESA's Rosetta spacecraft is on a decade-long mission to bring the Philae lander to comet 67P/Churyumov--Gerasimenko. They're getting close, but it's a long trip. From this animation it looks like Philae is getting a little impatient to reach the comet and start doing some science.

  3. ESA’s Rosetta Brought Us a GIF of a Moving Comet From Way out in Space

    My own reaction GIF-making seems even more trivial now...

    A few months ago, we got the first images from the European Space Agency's Rosetta mission of the comet they're tracking, but at the time, it was no more than an extra bright pixel. Well, now it's several extra-bright pixels, so Rosetta made us a GIF!

  4. Astronauts To Test Super-Sensitive “Touchy-Feely” Joystick In Space, Probably Not A Euphemism

    Or is it?!

    After making a whole lot of NASA-related dick jokes last weekend, I'm going to avoid the easy punchline here and just stick to facts. This summer, astronauts on the International Space Station will test a wearable joystick that might one day allow them to control robots on other words from orbit. Also, you strap the joystick to your waist. Because.

  5. Rosetta Has Finally Spotted Her Comet, Sent Back First Images

    Cue Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight."

    Pictures taken by Rosetta earlier this week confirm that the ESA's little spacecraft that could is right on track for her rendezvous in August with 67P/Churymov-Gerasimenko. For the first time, Rosetta's OSIRIS camera has captured images of the comet on which she will attempt her unprecedented landing.

  6. Check Out This Interactive 3D Visualization Of Rosetta’s Journey Through Space

    Man, can you imagine how bummed we'd all be if this baby hadn't woken up?

    Now that the unmanned spacecraft Rosetta has woken up and contacted the ESA, she can begin her ultimate mission of flying alongside and eventually landing on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.. Want to watch her do it? Well, you can't, because she's in space. But you can track her progress through our galaxy with this interactive map.

  7. ESA’s Unmanned Spacecraft Rosetta Has AWOKEN TO FULFILL HER DESTINY

    "Yeesh, that was a close one," says Science.

    Citizens of Earth, the Rosetta spacecraft awoke from her slumber at the last minute after an agonizing wait yesterday. If you ever wanted to watch grown geniuses weep for joy, this is your chance.

  8. The ESA’s Rosetta Is Set to Wake up AS WE TYPE: The Future Is Now! [Livestream]

    She's going to call, right? Why hasn't she called?

    How are you spending your federal bank holiday? If you're just lying around on your couch watching Sleepy Hollow then cut it out, ya dummy! You could be participating in space history! That's literally the best kind of history!

  9. Up Late or Live Somewhere Where 4:12AM EST Isn’t Super Early? Watch the ESA’s Gaia Launch Live

    4:12AM is too early? Space waits for no one!

    Depending on where you live, the ESA's Gaia spacecraft will launch either at a perfectly reasonable time tomorrow afternoon or at an unacceptably early hour of the morning. If you happen to be in an area where you won't have to wake up before sunrise, watch Gaia launch live on its mission to create a better map of our galaxy.

  10. European Satellite’s Fall from Orbit Was Harmless, Proving We Can Do Math

    We do so love being right.

    To the Internet's credit, no one seemed all that concerned about the European Space Agency's falling satellite over the weekend, despite Fox News running a headline that it might land in your backyard and telling you who to sue. It burned up harmlessly in the atmosphere as expected—the satellite, not Fox News. Sorry.
