The European Space Agency’s Rosetta arrived at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko at 9 a.m. GMT on 6th August after a ten-year journey. In November Rosetta will deploy a lander, Philae, to study the surface and drill down to the interior.
The International Space Station is the largest artificial body in orbit. The first component of this modular structure was launched in 1998 and now serves as a space research laboratory. View this collection of truly incredible footage taken from the International Space Station as well as a timelapse of the International Space Station (ISS) moving across the night sky filmed in Germany.
This gallery shows a selection of clips from the formation of a black hole to a gamma ray burst. A black hole is a region of spacetime with a gravitational field so strong that even light cannot escape it. It is thought that black holes are created by the core collapse of a massive star when it is dying. It is thought that most if not all galaxies have a supermassive black hole at their centres.
