Is this the real launch, or is this just fantasy?

A tremendous explosion bursts out from the Sun. Just a few minutes later and the spacecraft is bathed in radiation, blinding the star trackers it relies on to know what direction it's pointing in. The spacecraft goes into Safe Mode, like a turtle retreating into its shell. Most units are powered off, the onboard computer is rebooted and spacecraft points its solar arrays to the Sun. The control teams are left wondering what on Earth – or in space – has gone wrong.

Homemade space food for Matthias Maurer








ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer plans to take a small slice of Saarland to the International Space Station.

Later this month, chefs from his home region in south-western Germany will whip up a selection of spaceworthy dishes and put these out for public vote. The most popular will be added to Matthias’ space menu for his future mission, but he will not taste the winning Saarland speciality until he is on board.

Discovering new penguin colonies from space








Satellite images have revealed that there are nearly 20% more emperor penguin colonies in Antarctica than previously thought. Scientists, at the British Antarctic Survey, have used satellite data from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission to track penguin guano, or penguin poo, to monitor the presence of thousands of penguins.

Bike routing app uses space for cyclists








A navigation app that guides people on safer, more enjoyable bike journeys will be launched later this summer as social-distancing measures encourage more cyclists to take to the road.

Developed by London-based company Beeline, it uses space data and crowdsourced information to generate route suggestions, and can be connected to a device fixed onto the bike’s handlebars that provides easy-to-understand prompts.
