Planet Earth is a Tiny, Tiny Object in Space

Do you know how tiny Earth is compared to other planets and stars? We are very very tiny! Earth is compared to Venus, Mars, Mercury and Pluto. Then to Jupiter, Saturn , Uranus and Neptune Then to the Sun. Then to Arcturus - the brightest star in the northen hemisphere, and other smaller stars - Pollux and Sirius. Our Sun is a tiny dot in the Milky Way! Earth is even smaller!

Hubblecast 05: Hubble finds ring of dark matter

An international team of astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has discovered a ghostly ring of dark matter formed long ago during a colossal collision between two galaxy clusters. This is the first time that dark matter has been found with a distribution that differs substantially from the distribution of ordinary matter.

XMM-Newton Space Telescope

After launch from Kourou, French Guiana on 10 December 1999, the European Space Agency's X-ray Multi-Mirror satellite is the most powerful X-ray telescope ever placed in orbit. Scientists are sure the mission will help solve many cosmic mysteries, ranging from enigmatic black holes to the formation of galaxies.

Many celestial objects generate X-rays in extremely violent processes. But Earth's atmosphere blocks out these X-rays, messengers of what occurred in the distant past when stars were born or died, and clues to our future. Only by placing X-ray detectors in space can such sources be detected, pinpointed and studied in detail. XMM-Newton, the largest science satellite ever built in Europe, has an unprecedented sensitivity.

XMM-Newton carries three very advanced X-ray telescopes. They each contain 58 high-precision concentric mirrors, delicately nested to offer the largest collecting area possible to catch the elusive X-rays. These Mirror Modules allow XMM-Newton to detect millions of sources, far more than any previous X-ray mission.
