Astrophysics

ESA's Gaia mission launched successfully on a Soyuz-Fregat rocket from Kourour, French Guiana at 09:12 UT on 19 December 2013. The mission is designed to measure the positions and velocity of roughly 1,000,000,000 stars as well as determine their temperature, composition, and other properties. More...

NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) satellite has released data from the first 57% of the sky surveyed during the mission. The satellite went into hibernation in early February 2011, but its discoveries include 20 comets, more than 33,000 asteroids between Mars and Jupiter, and 133 near-Earth objects. More...

Heliophysics

NASA's launch of the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) spacecraft took place at 7:27 p.m. on 27 June 2013 (02:27 UT, 28 June) about 100 miles from Vandenberg AFB. More...

Voyager 1 has encountered a region of spacecraft at the edge of our solar system that scientists believe is the last region the spacecraft will have to cross prior to entering interstellar space. More...

Lunar and Planetary Science

Images and data from Pluto and its moons continue to trickle in from the New Horizons spacecraft. Images of atmospheric haze and evidence of flowing ice were discussed at a press conference on 24 July. For recent images and information, see the NASA and APL New Horizons pages.

The Philae lander re-established contact on 13 June after 7 months of silence on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The lander has had a couple of short communications sessions with the Rosetta orbiter and appears to be in good condition. More details are available in the 15 June ESA Bulletin.

NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft ended its mission as planned with an impact on the surface of Mercury 30 April at 19:26 UT (3:26 p.m. EDT). The estimated impact position was 54.4° N, 210.1° E. A last image was returned shortly before the impact. More...
