NASA Image Of The Day
The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket rises above the lightning masts on Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, carrying the Dragon resupply spacecraft to the International Space Station. Liftoff was during an instantaneous window at 3:25 p.m. EDT on Friday, April 18. Dragon is making its fourth trip to the space station. The SpaceX-3 mission, carrying almost 2.5 tons of supplies, technology and science experiments, is the third of 12 flights under NASA's Commercial Resupply Services contract to resupply the orbiting laboratory. > Read more Image Credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett...

  • Livas brings aerosols and clouds under one roof

    In Greek mythology, Aeolus was ‘keeper of the winds’ and ruled over a number of gods, each responsible for a particular wind – one of which was Livas who blew from the southwest. Today, Livas is giving a helping hand to ESA’s ADM-Aeolus and EarthCARE satellite missions.

  • Sentinel-1 first images

    Demonstrating the potential of radar vision, Sentinel-1A offers a tantalising glimpse of what it will provide for Europe’s Copernicus programme

  • First radar vision for Copernicus

    Launched on 3 April, ESA’s Sentinel-1A satellite has already delivered its first radar images of Earth. They offer a tantalising glimpse of the kind of operational imagery that this new mission will provide for Europe’s ambitious Copernicus environmental monitoring programme.
