From the far side of the Sun!

Hi gang,

After a period in safe mode the STEREO-A probe has started transmitting data from the far side of the Sun. The images and science can be accessed from this page here http://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/stereo-a-spacecraft-returns-data-from-the-far-side-of-the-sun. Co-incidentally gang, the image that is shown on the sites main page is worthy of a WOW title, it is spectacular to say the least!!

Bye Bye MESSENGER

Hi Gang,

It has been a few months now since this second probe to the planet Mercury stopped transmitting but I feel it is worth noting here. The mission to the planet and the science sent back from the probe before it was impacted on the surface was well worth looking through by everyone. Take a look at the mission page here to take a trip around the site, it is well worth the effort! ...

Rosetta Images

Hi Gang,

With all the excitement of New |Horizons it is possible to forget other missions. With this in mind take a look at some of these amazing images from the comet Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko . They are amazing!! http://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Space_Science/Rosetta/Highlights/Boundary_conditions

Solar System 2?

Hi Gang,

A team of astronomers using the ESO's 3.5 metre telescope have discovered a Jupiter sized planet orbiting a sun like star. We know that Jupiter was vitally important in the formation of our own solar system and hopefully in this one too! Take a look at the report here http://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1529/

A Quiet Board!

Hi Gang,

It has been a couple of years since I was last posting on the boards, this was due to other commitments and I apologise for my absence. When I left the board was very lively with people posting many posts and replies were heavy. Now it seems that the board is very quiet. I don't mind if no-one replies to my posts, I post because I enjoy bringing news to the boards and ...

Here come the Sun.

Hi Gang,

We have all probably read over the past few years how we have had a quiet Sun and how it is just beginning to "wake up". Here is an amazing image from the SOHO solar probe to show this in an interesting graphic way. Take a look here and see what I mean http://www.esa.int/spaceinimages/Images/2015/07/20_SOHO_views_of_the_Sun
