ESA Space in Images An astronaut in space has many tasks, from monitoring experiments to maintaining equipment to organising the more than 70 000 objects that are on the International Space Station, as well as staying fit and healthy. Astronauts have 24-hour support from mission control to keep track, but to explore farther out into our Solar System, they will need more autonomy.

Satellites confirm sinking of San Francisco tower
The Sentinel-1 satellites have shown that the Millennium Tower skyscraper in the centre of San Francisco is sinking by a few centimetres a year. Studying the city is helping scientists to improve the monitoring of urban ground movements, particularly for subsidence hotspots in Europe. Completed in 2009, the 58-storey Millennium Tower has recently been showing signs of sinking and tilting.

ESA Space in Images Before a spacecraft goes into space it must undergo rigorous testing to confirm it can withstand the violent vibrations and sounds during launch. For the powerful 6.5 m-diameter telescope of the James Webb Space Telescope, or JWST, making the same measurements both before and after a simulated launch is a vital part of confirming its optics will not be adversely affected by the real launch.

ESA’s new Mars orbiter prepares for first science
The ExoMars orbiter is preparing to make its first scientific observations at Mars during two orbits of the planet starting next week. The Trace Gas Orbiter, or TGO, a joint endeavour between ESA and Roscosmos, arrived at Mars on 19 October. It entered orbit, as planned, on a highly elliptical path that takes it from between 230 and 310 km above the surface to around 98 000 km every 4.2 days.
