ESA News

A new interactive website from ESA Science [] displays the orbits of all the Agency's operational scientific satellites. You can choose from one of several views:

  • the Earth view displays all near-Earth ESA scientific satellites orbiting the planet -- Hubble, XMM-Newton and the four Cluster satellites;
  • the Solar System view shows the current location of ESA's other scientific satellites and space probes, including Cassini-Huygens and Ulysses.
With each of these views you can choose to follow the satellites in real-time or to watch how their orbits vary over the years.

By selecting the Satellite Info option you can access factsheets and interactive 3-D models of each of the satellites featured in this tool.
