Deep Space Communication Engineering
ESA uses cutting-edge technology, high-precision pointing antennas, multi-frequency radio reception and transmission, cryogenically cooled low-noise amplifiers, high-power uplink amplifiers, highly sensitive receivers for telemetry reception, telecommand generation and radiometric measurements to provide the most accurate possible tracking for mission billions of kilometres away in deep space.

Launch and docking Highlights
A Soyuz spacecraft launched on 28 May 2014 from Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and docked with the International Space Station in the early hours of the morning. Onboard were ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst and his Expedition 40/41 crewmates, who will now live and work in space for the next six months. Flying with Alexander are Russian cosmonaut Maxim Suraev and NASA astronaut Gregory Reid Wiseman, demonstrating the value of international cooperation in space. Alexander's flight is the third visit of a German national to the orbital outpost and the sixth long-duration mission for an ESA astronaut. Alexander's 166-day mission is called Blue Dot after the American astronomer Carl Sagan's description of distant Earth as "a pale blue dot" as seen on a photograph taken by NASA's Voyager probe six billion kilometres from our planet.

Volare Space Robotics Challenge finals at ESA's technical heart ESTEC in the Netherlands
Seven teams were invited to the finals to battle their remote-controlled robots on a mock-up of the International Space Station. Their mission: to unload as much cargo from ESA's Automated Transfer Vehicle as possible in a given time. This a highlight of the day's activities.

Life in the Solar System
thematic page:  ISS SCIENCE 
Charles Cockell, about exobiology research and the potential benefits of biomining on other celestial bodies. ESA has a long history of experiments exposing life to the harsh conditions of space. Can life survive space travel? Can life hitchhike across the galaxy and where did life come from to begin with?

Understanding Muscle Loss
thematic page:  ISS SCIENCE 
Molecular medicine scientist Nathaniel J. Szewczyk talks about research with worms on the International Space Station. Scientists are trying to find out which cellular signals are sensitive to gravity to combat unwanted changes in our cardiovascular system, bones, muscles and nervous system. Researching these changes offers clues on how to reverse ageing for people on Earth.

ESA Astronaut Alexander Gerst explains the logo for his ISS mission, Blue Dot. The mission logo is inspired by an image of Earth taken by NASA's Voyager spacecraft as it travelled six billion kilometres from our planet. American astronomer Carl Sagan described our faintly visible planet on the photograph as "pale blue dot".
