MISSION NEWS AS OF FRIDAY 9 JULY 2010
+ ROSETTA FLYBY OF ASTEROID (21) LUTETIA
This Saturday, 10 July 2010, the Rosetta spacecraft will fly past asteroid (21) Lutetia and perform observations and measurements of the object from a unique vantage point. Closest approach is at approximately 15:45 UT (spacecraft event time), or 18:10 CEST (ground event time), at a distance of about 3170 km from the asteroid. For background information and some details about how to follow the flyby see the overview at:
+ NEW INTEGRAL CATALOGUE EXPANDS GAMMA-RAY HORIZONS
Astronomers have the best idea yet of how the Universe looks in gamma-rays after the publication of the fourth INTEGRAL Soft Gamma-Ray Survey Catalogue. The catalogue, which has been constructed from more than 70 million seconds of observing time, now includes significantly more extragalactic sources and is set to orchestrate the future observing programmes of several ground-based and space observatories.
+ NOTIFICATION OF A FORTHCOMING CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR A MEDIUM-SIZED MISSION WITH A POSSIBLE LAUNCH IN 2022
At the end of July 2010, the Director of Science and Robotic Exploration plans to issue a Call for Proposals for medium-sized (M-class) missions, as part of the Cosmic Vision 2015-2025 Plan - ESA's long term scientific plan. The Call is planned to lead to the selection of one M-class mission for a launch opportunity currently foreseen around late 2022.
