No they won't, yes they will. The UK was heading for a car crash at the @esa ministerial, with doubts in the last few days that it would turn up with the expected uplift in its subscription. Normal service looks to have been resumed. #Space19Plus bbc.com/news/science-e…
Attention now turns to where the cash from Britain and the other big member states goes. A major battleground will be the €1.4bn #Copernicus package. How hard will the UK commit? EO really important to Germany here; it'll be going in very hard, as you would expect. #Space19Plus
#Copernicus at #Space19plus is a one-card trick with the card placed face-upwards. It's really difficult to get it wrong. A large R&D commitment now will unlock chunky contracts down the road - but only if you're *in* Copernicus. How big a problem is that for the UK? #Brexit

For the first time ever, ESA has performed a 'collision avoidance manoeuvre' to protect one of its satellites from colliding with a 'mega constellation'
#SpaceTraffic
@esa This morning, @ESA's #Aeolus Earth observation satellite fired its thrusters, moving it off a collision course with a @SpaceX satellite in their #Starlink constellation
@esa @SpaceX @ESA_EO Experts in our #SpaceDebris team calculated the risk of collision between these two active satellites, determining the safest option for #Aeolus would be to increase its altitude and pass over the @SpaceX satellite

Today we'd like to share some fun facts about #Mars and our discoveries so far with #ESA Mars Express & @ESA_TGO. But first let's take a look at the @esa @NASA @isro @roscosmos spacecraft currently investigating the Red Planet:
📷Hi-res: esa.int/spaceinimages/… #ExploreFarther
@ESA_TGO @esa @NASA @isro @roscosmos Did you know there is a telecommunications network at #Mars? Orbiters relay commands and send #science data from landers & rovers back to #Earth. Our #ExoMars @ESA_TGO is a key provider of data relay services!🔴〰️🛰〰️🌍 #ExploreFarther

@ESA_TGO @esa @NASA @isro @roscosmos Did you know that you can find out what the #weather is on #Mars? Landers & rovers report the local weather while orbiters keep an eye on global atmosphere developments including cloud formations and dust storms☁️🌪

We're welcoming @astro_luca to #ESRIN near Rome in Italy this morning for his final European press conference before he is launched to the @Space_Station in July! There're exciting times ahead for this seasoned @esa #astronaut 👨‍🚀 See more #MissionBeyond
We’re in the hall at #ESRIN as media are starting to gather. Did you know @esa establishment ESRIN is ESA’s centre for Earth observation? Last year the team celebrated its 50 year anniversary 🎉 @ESA_EO

#SpaceScience #ImageOfTheWeek: Grab your #3D glasses & dive into a river delta on #Mars! 💦 This recent image was taken by @ExoMars_CaSSIS onboard our @ESA_TGO, currently investigating the planet’s atmosphere & mapping subsurface water-ice. #ScienceAtESA 📷esa.int/spaceinimages/…
Our @ESA_TGO is part one of the joint @esa @roscosmos #ExoMars programme. Coming soon is @ESA_MarsRover, set for launch in 2020 and landing on #Mars in 2021 in a quest to look for evidence for life buried underground. esa.int/exomars #ScienceAtESA #Space19Plus
More exciting #MarsRover news to come later this week..! 🔎
