ESA invites European schools to join together to observe the transit of Mercury taking place on Monday 9 May 2016. Schools are challenged to observe the transit and to recreate the measurements made by astronomers around 300 years ago in order to calculate the distance between the Earth and the Sun.

A handful of ESA-sponsored bursaries will be available to cover part of the expenses of European/ESA-member state PhD students attending the 4th CHEOPS Science workshop in Geneva this summer. These will be awarded on a competitive basis, with priority given to students presenting a poster or giving a talk. The deadline for applications for...
