Thanks to a manoeuvre performed on 10 May 2005 at 19:20 UT, ESA flight controllers have successfully completed the deployment of the first boom of the MARSIS radar on board ESA's Mars Express spacecraft.

New results from simulations based on Cluster data are providing insight in the processes that transfer solar wind plasma into the Earth's magnetotail when the Interplanetary Magnetic Field is strongly northward oriented.

Based on observations by the ESA/NASA SOHO mission a Chinese-German team of scientists have identified the magnetic structures in the solar corona where the fast solar wind originates.

Measurements by the SWAN instrument onboard SOHO, have shown that the heliosphere, the solar wind filled volume which prevents the solar system from getting embedded in the local (ambient) interstellar medium is not axi-symmetrical, but is distorted, very likely under the effect of the local galactic magnetic field.

Scientists using XMM-Newton have discovered an x-ray glow on Jupiter due to x-rays from the Sun being reflected back off the planet's atmosphere.

Using ESA's XMM-Newton observatory and the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope, scientists have discovered the most distant massive structure in the Universe.

Scientists have pierced through a dusty stellar nursery to capture the earliest and most detailed view of a collapsing gas cloud turning into a star, analogous to a baby's first ultrasound.

Around the time of the descent of the Huygens probe in Titan's atmosphere on 15 January 2005, ground based observations of Saturn's largest moon were made with the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile during the nights from 14-16 January.

The dancing light of the aurorae on Saturn behaves in ways different from how scientists have thought possible for the last 25 years. New research by a team of US and European planetary scientists led by John Clarke of Boston University, USA, has overturned theories about how Saturn's magnetic field behaves and how its aurorae are generated.

The third close flyby of Titan occurred on Tuesday, 15 February 2005 at 6:58 UTC. At closest approach, Cassini passed within 1.6 Titan radii, at an altitude of 1577 km above the surface and at a speed of 6.1 kilometres per second.

Multipoint measurements from the Cluster spacecraft have revealed, for the first time, a direct observation of a three dimensional geometry for a hitherto unexplained type of magnetic reconnection.
