Planck, ESAâ€™s microwave observatory that will study the relic radiation of the Big Bang, was shipped from LiÃ¨ge, Belgium, to Europeâ€™s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, on 18 February.
The quick turn-around time of the INTEGRAL operation teams has enabled rare high-energy observations of a magnetar.

A new nano satellite mission, called 'Firefly,' sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and led by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md will explore the relationship between lightning and these sudden bursts, called Terrestrial Gamma Ray Flashes (TGFs).
X-ray and gamma-ray data from ESAâ€™s XMM-Newton and Integral orbiting observatories has been used to test, for the first time, the physical processes that make magnetars, an atypical class of neutron stars, shine in X-rays.
The scientific community is celebrating 7 years of high resolution hyperspectral satellite imagery from the highly successful CHRIS multi-spectral payload imager.
Thanks to ESA and UK technology transfer support, a British company has developed a device based on the gamma-ray detection equipment used in ESAâ€™s Integral astronomy satellite to detect and identify the radioactive material mixed with conventional explosives in â€˜dirty bombsâ€™.
ESAâ€™s Integral gamma-ray observatory has observed several low-luminosity gamma-ray bursts, confirming the existence of an entire population of weaker bursts hardly noticed so far.
One of the experiments housed on the European Columbus laboratoryâ€™s external platform is an automated eye in the sky known as the Earth Viewing Camera (EVC). Now, after several weeks of troubleshooting by the EVC team in the Netherlands, the first pictures from the orbiting camera have arrived safely back on Earth.
Gamma-Ray Astronomy -- Gamma-ray astronomy is the astronomical study of gamma rays. Long before experiments could detect gamma rays emitted by cosmic sources, scientists had known that the universe should be producing these photons. Work by Feenberg and Primakoff in 1948, Hayakawa and Hutchinson in 1952, and, especially, Morrison in 1958 had led scientists to believe that a number of different processes which were occurring in the universe would result in gamma-ray emission. These...
