The European Space Agency is preparing for the future through a range of activities and programmes, which work together for efficient results. They can be divided into activities allowing for development of new activities and programmes in the short- to medium-terms as well as others which will not be complete until farther into the future.
24 December 2018 The cereal-box sized GomX-4B – ESA’s biggest small CubeSat yet flown – has completed its mission for the Agency, testing out new miniaturised technologies including: intersatellite link communication with its GomX-4A twin, a hyperspectral imager, star tracker and butane-based propulsion system.

Final preparation operations are in full swing at the JAXA Tanegashima Space Center for this month's IBUKI-2 launch onboard the HII-A launch vehicle, large Japanese signature rocket. Have you ever wondered where exactly a satellite is contained in the launch vehicle? Payload is stored right there within the white tip of the rocket, called payload fairing.

A Long March-2D rocket carrying six Yunhai-2 satellites and a test communication satellite blasts off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China, Dec. 29, 2018. The six atmospheric environment research satellites will be used to study atmospheric environment, monitor space environment, prevent and reduce disasters, and conduct scientific experiments.

This marks the first step toward the satellite operations.
When a rocket ascends as high as the outer space where there is very little atmosphere, the payload fairing flips open, leaving the onboard satellite exposed to the outer space.

Experts say that greenhouse gases produced by human activity represent one of the biggest causes of global warming. The Intragovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), an international organization of specialists that conducts scientific research on climate change and evaluates related climate policies, released its Fifth Assessment Report in 2013. In the document, the authors warned that “Warming of the climate system is unequivocal... It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century... Continued emissions of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and changes in all components of the climate system.”
