Episode 10: Diverse Worlds - The Moon and Titan

Rebecca Barnes takes a look at the Earth's Moon and Titan, two very different natural satellites in our Solar System, and finds out about the two ESA missions that have explored them.

Episode 1: The Full Spectrum

In this first episode Rebecca Barnes sets the scene for this vodcast series by looking at why we need to send telescopes into space and considers what these 'eyes in the skies' can tell us about the extraordinary Universe in which we live.

Delivering Cutting Edge Science into the Classroom

Produced in 2015 and filmed at the ESERO-UK Secondary Conference, in 2014, this video shows teachers talking about the benefits of bringing in ideas from cutting edge research and technology into the classroom. They describe how information about current space research and missions can help their teaching. The...

Curiosity's Seven Minutes of Terror

In August 2012, an unmanned rover touched down on the surface of Mars. NASA's Curiosity Rover was sent to take measurements of the atmosphere and martian terrain in an effort to understand more about the history of Mars and whether the planet ever sustained life. This video shows an animation of the incredible...

Collaborative science

Professor Sanjeev Gupta explains how scientists from many different disciplines have been brought together for the European Space Agency Aurora programme.  Scientists and engineers also speak about how exciting it is to be working on a search for life on other planets. 

This video is part of a series of ten...

Autonomous navigation

Dr. Mark Woods explains how the rover technologies must be partly autonomous, since the signals from Earth to Mars take too long for every command to be send from Earth.  The technologies developed for space, also have applications on Earth.

This video is part of a series of ten which look at the one of the...

Atacama Large Millimetre/Submillimetre Array (ALMA)

From the European Southern Observatory, this video describes ALMA, the largest astronomical project currently being built.

ALMA is a state-of-the-art telescope to study light with wavelengths of about one millimetre, shining from some of the coldest objects in the Universe. It is a cooperation of the...

Atacama Desert

Astrobiologist Dr. Lewis Dartnell talks from the Atacama Desert about a research trip to find extremophiles that might give scientists some clues as to the kind of life that may exist on the surface of Mars.  Lewis shows how quartz can act as a natural sunscreen to enable cyanobacteria to grow in the dry desert...

Astrobiology

Dr Claire Cousins and Mark Fox-Powell explain how scientists look at life that exists in extreme environments on Earth, to see what kind of life scientists might see on the surface of Mars.  This knowledge helps scientists plan the best target for a rover.

Professor Cockell takes us through the astrobiology...
