The European Union has established stringent requirements for the monitoring from space of man-made greenhouse gases (GHGs). An EU-funded project is developing a miniaturised spectrometer to be mounted on small satellites. This will enable scientists to meet the specifications for GHG monitoring and ultimately help us to better understand climate change.

Photo of article How to build a large spacecraft

Need to retrieve a few tonnes of cargo from Mars? Send some seriously heavy gear into deep space? Fly out sufficient mass to deflect an asteroid? Current spacecraft would not be nearly big or powerful enough, say EU-funded researchers who have looked into a possible next-generation design based on nuclear electric propulsion.

Photo of article Mapping the galaxy: To boldly go where no data miners have gone before

The biggest archive of celestial objects ever created is being made accessible to researchers and space enthusiasts for probing the depths of the Milky Way, assisted by advanced data mining and analysis tools developed by an EU-funded project.

Photo of article On-board processor 'survival kit' for deep space

Space exploration demands high performance on-board computers with low power requirements that can survive the rigours of aggressive radiation. The EU-funded APEX project has developed the advanced technologies needed to design an ultra-reliable processor for future space missions as far away as Saturn and Jupiter.

Photo of article Vialactea project reveals a new view of the Milky Way

Imagine our galaxy as a huge living organism, with its own skeleton and its own evolution. The Via Lactea project, after three years of research, has put together a big database about the area of the universe that hosts our galaxy.

Photo of article At home in extreme environments: Europe's first space analogue habitat

What would it be like to live on Mars? Much like Earth, maybe, in due course - but the pioneers who will one day head out there will face a deeply hostile environment upon arrival. EU-funded researchers have developed a habitat for simulated space missions in suitably challenging locations down here on Earth. It can also support research in extreme conditions.
