State-of-the-art grating for Gaia
An important milestone has been reached for the Gaia Radial Velocity Spectrometer (RVS): the full-size demonstrator model of the RVS grating - a key component responsible for the dispersion of the light into constituent wavelengths - has been built by industry and was delivered to ESA last month.

Magnetar observed during outburst thanks to rapid response of INTEGRAL
The quick turn-around time of the INTEGRAL operation teams has enabled rare high-energy observations of a magnetar. The observations, which were performed as a Target of Opportunity, followed indications late last week that this magnetar, the Anomalous X-ray Pulsar, 1E 1547.0-5408, had entered outburst mode.

ISSI Call for Proposals for International Teams in Space Science
(incl. Geosciences)


The International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern, Switzerland, invites proposals for establishing International Teams to conduct on its premises research activities in Space Sciences, based on the interdisciplinary analysis and evaluation of data from spacecraft and possible integration with ground data and theoretical models. For the purpose of this Call, Space Sciences include the Earth System sciences , Solar and Solar Terrestrial science, Planetary science, Astrobiology, Astrophysics and Fundamental physics.

First light curve analysis of 20 eclipsing binaries with INTEGRAL's OMC
Photometric data gathered by INTEGRAL's Optical Monitoring Camera (OMC) has been used to study selected eclipsing binary stars for which the light curve had hitherto not been analyzed. This recent study by Petr Zasche (Astronomical Institute, Charles University in Prague) provides new key information on the basic properties of these binary systems - properties that were previously not known or only estimated with low precision.

Cluster detects invisible escaping ions
For the first time, it has been possible to quantify the amount of hydrogen naturally escaping each year from the Earth's atmosphere. This hydrogen outflow has been shown to be of the order of thousands of tons. The result was obtained by applying a new analytical method to a unique set of electric field data collected by the European Space Agency's Cluster mission. The escaping hydrogen has previously been invisible to classical particle detectors on satellites due to its very low energy.
