Inside Rosetta’s comet
There are no large caverns inside Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. ESA's Rosetta mission has made measurements that clearly demonstrate this, solving a long-standing mystery. Comets are the icy remnants left over from the formation of the planets 4.6 billion years ago. A total of eight comets have now been visited by spacecraft and, thanks to these missions, we have built up a picture of the basic properties of these cosmic time capsules.

This might seem like an obvious question, but how exactly does a plant know which way to grow its roots and which way to grow towards the Sun? Understanding the deeper mechanisms that cause a plant to grow in a particular direction has far-reaching possibilities for agriculture - as well as for astronauts who want to enjoy fresh vegetables on a long space mission.

A Milky Way twin swept by an ultra-fast X-ray wind
ESA's XMM-Newton has found a wind of high-speed gas streaming from the centre of a bright spiral galaxy like our own that may be reducing its ability to produce new stars. It is not unusual to find hot winds blowing from the swirling discs of material around supermassive black holes at the centre of active galaxies.

Exposed ice on Rosetta’s comet confirmed as water
Observations made shortly after Rosetta's arrival at its target comet in 2014 have provided definitive confirmation of the presence of water ice. Although water vapour is the main gas seen flowing from comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the great majority of ice is believed to come from under the comet's crust, and very few examples of exposed water ice have been found on the surface.
