      • Monitoring satellite at L5

        This animation shows the orbital location of ESA’s future solar activity monitoring mission at L5, the 5th Lagrange point. This position provides a unique ‘side’ view of the Sun.

        The agency is now studying design options for stationing a dedicated space weather mission at the L5 point, where gravity and the orbital motion of the spacecraft, the Sun and our planet combine to create a stable location. From here, the spacecraft would view solar features before they rotate into view of Earth.
        The spacecraft's instruments will provide near real-time data and are expected to build on those flown on earlier ESA and joint solar missions, such as SOHO, Stereo, Proba-2 and Solar Orbiter.

            • The hunt for Planet X turns up a new solar system object
              While searching for the mysterious Planet X that some astronomers believe lurks on the edge of our solar system, researchers instead found an extremely distant object they dubbed "the Goblin." And this object provides compelling evidence for the existence of Planet X.

                NASA's Kepler Probe Is Almost Out of Fuel, And Has Gone Into Sleep Mode

                The Kepler mission is coming to an end.
                The planet-hunting spacecraft that transformed our understanding of exoplanets and other solar systems is almost out of fuel.
                What little fuel remains is being held in reserve to ensure that the last of its data can be sent home.


                • Cosmic ray detection could mean Voyager 2 is close to interstellar space

                  Now almost 11 billion miles (17.7 billion kilometers) from Earth, NASA’s Voyager 2 spacecraft has detected an increasing amount of cosmic rays that originate beyond our Solar System, leading some scientists to believe the probe is on the verge of entering interstellar space.
