Latest Gravimetry Stories
Mssion data from GOCE will allow it to live on in another research project aimed at understanding ocean currents.
The ESA's GOCE mission ended earlier this week, but the mission’s discoveries have only just begun.
The ESA announced on Monday its Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer mission has come to an end.
With launch just a month away, ESA’s Swarm constellation has been fueled. Engineers will soon be focusing on the careful task of attaching the three identical satellites to the upper stage of the rocket for simultaneous release into orbit around Earth.
After four years of working to map out Earth's gravity, the European Space Agency's Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) mission is nearing its end.
A joint Australian-German research team led by Curtin University’s Dr Christian Hirt has created the highest-resolution maps of Earth’s gravity field to date – showing gravitational variations up to 40 per cent larger than previously assumed.
Two years ago today, Japan was rocked by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and giant tsunami that caused both death and destruction throughout the country. Now, with instrument's like the European Space Agency's GOCE satellite, scientists will be able to understand a bit more about these devastating quakes.
ESA’s GOCE gravity satellite has already delivered the most accurate gravity map of Earth, but its orbit is now being lowered in order to obtain even better results.
