    The Hayabusa2 space­craft had to per­form five tra­jec­to­ry cor­rec­tion ma­noeu­vres (TCMs) to suc­cess­ful­ly com­plete its mis­sion. Whilst the cap­sule car­ry­ing the sam­ples from as­ter­oid Ryugu will land safe­ly on Earth, Hayabusa2 will move on to chart a new course through space.

    An artis­tic rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the launch of the Sen­tinel-6 satel­lites in­to space. Or­bit­ing at an al­ti­tude of ap­prox­i­mate­ly 1300 kilo­me­tres, Sen­tinel-6 will ob­serve Earth’s oceans.

    The Coper­ni­cus Sen­tinel-6 mis­sion con­sists of two iden­ti­cal satel­lites – Sen­tinel-6 Michael Freilich and Sen­tinel-6B, the sec­ond of which will be launched five years af­ter the first. The aim of the mis­sion is to mon­i­tor sea lev­el rise, as well as to record sea state and ocean cur­rents.

    Vatnajökull Glacier in Iceland

    Vat­na­jökull Glacier in Ice­land

    19.11.2020
    Quelle: Contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data (2019), processed by ESA  |  Download
    The Vat­na­jökull Glacier in Ice­land is the largest glacier in Eu­rope, cov­er­ing an area of ap­prox­i­mate­ly 8400 square kilo­me­tres. Due to glob­al warm­ing, con­ti­nen­tal ice mass­es are melt­ing, caus­ing sea lev­els to rise. As a re­sult of this and oth­er ef­fects, sea lev­el is cur­rent­ly ris­ing world­wide by an av­er­age of just over three mil­lime­tres per year.

    The most strik­ing land­scape fea­ture on Mars is the al­most 4000-kilo­me­tre-long Valles Mariner­is, just north of the equa­tor. In the east, at Eos Chas­ma, the up to ten-kilo­me­tre-deep canyon sys­tem merges in­to a net­work of wide out­flow chan­nels which ex­tend a fur­ther one-and-a-half thou­sand kilo­me­tres to the north and were cre­at­ed three to four bil­lion years ago by episod­ic, catas­troph­ic flash floods. The head­wa­ter re­gions of these val­leys of­ten con­tain ‘chaot­ic ar­eas’, which were formed when sub­sur­face ice thawed and flowed away. The re­sult­ing cav­i­ties col­lapsed, the en­er­gy-rich wa­ter mass­es took large amounts of erod­ed ma­te­ri­al with them, leav­ing be­hind a ‘chaot­ic’ pat­tern of mesas – the rem­nants of the orig­i­nal plateau. At Pyrrhae Re­gio, DLR’s HRSC in­stru­ment record­ed such a chaot­ic area dur­ing Mars Ex­press or­bit 20,972.
