(Phys.org) -- Europe missed Sundays solar eclipse on the other side of the planet but ESAs space weather microsatellite Proba-2 passed repeatedly through the Moons shadow.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers gathered for European Space Weather Week have been presented with the latest results from ESAs own space weather station: the Proba-2 microsatellite.
Sometimes all it takes is fresh air to get a new lease of life. ESAs Proba-2 microsatellite is a good example: an influx of nitrogen has replenished its fuel tank, in the process demonstrating a whole new space technology.
(PhysOrg.com) -- ESAs Proba-2 small Sun-watcher was among the flotilla of satellites on watch as the Sun erupted spectacularly this week.
ESAs Proba-2 microsatellite experienced a conjunction of the spheres on Tuesday, as the Sun, Moon and Earth all lined up in front of it.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Proba-2 is a small but innovative member of ESA's spacecraft fleet, crammed with experimental technologies. In its first eight months of life it has already returned more than 90 000 images of the Sun.
Packed with novel devices and science instruments, Proba-2 is demonstrating technologies for future ESA missions while providing new views of our Sun.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Into its second week in orbit, Proba-2's spacecraft platform has proven to be in excellent health. This leaves the way clear for commissioning the many new technology payloads aboard the mini-satellite, among ...
(PhysOrg.com) -- The second satellite in ESA's Earth Explorer series - the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission - and the second demonstration satellite under ESA's Project for Onboard Autonomy (Proba-2) were launched ...
(PhysOrg.com) -- In readiness for launch on 2 November, ESA’s SMOS and Proba-2 satellites - encapsulated in the launcher fairing - have been transported from the cleanroom and installed in the launch tower at the Plesetsk ...
