TUM researchers present initial data from successful ESA mission ESA's GOCE satellite has been orbiting the Earth for more than a year and surveying its gravitational field more accurately than any instrument previously. The goal of the researchers "“ including scientists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) "“ is to determine the gravitational force in precise detail even in pathless places like the Himalayas. Evaluations of the first data from the satellite indicate...

Ongoing technical problems with its launcher has forced Europe's gravity mission to be bumped to next year. The arrow-shaped GOCE satellite will map tiny variations in the pull of gravity experienced across the world, giving scientists a clearer insight into how the oceans move, and provide a universal reference to measure height anywhere on Earth. But reliability concerns over its Russian rocket means a lift-off is now unlikely before February. The delay is frustrating for the Gravity Field...

In an attempt to find answers about motion sickness, scientists intend to launch 60 tiny fish on a zero gravity rocket ride from above the Arctic Circle on Monday. Tomas Hedqvist, project manager for Sweden's Esrange Space Centre, told Reuters that the baby cichlid fish will head 260 km (160 miles) into the air on an 11-metre (36-foot) two-stage rocket, where they will experience six minutes of weightlessness. Experimenters Reinhard Hilbig and Ralf Anken of the University of...

How high is Mount Everest exactly? Recent surveys have come up with heights that differ by more than five metres. An expedition called the Geodetic Journey is making its way through China and Tibet to highlight the importance of geodesy and how an accurate model of the geoid from ESA's GOCE mission will lead to a unified system for measuring heights. Geodesy is concerned with measuring and mapping the shape of the Earth's surface, to the benefit of all branches of Earth sciences and has many...
