Dark energy: it's the mysterious force that's tearing the universe apart. But, as we explore in this issue, we're slowly but surely beginning to crack one of the biggest mysteries of the universe. What is it? How does it determine the fate of the universe? How will the cosmos actually end – will it be a Big Crunch or a Big Rip? Over on page 16 the astrophysicists have the answers – and precisely where we're at in our unravelling of this invisible portion of the cosmos. Of course, this is the last issue of the year, so it makes sense that we give you a round-up of the events that'll be happening throughout 2019, featuring the best stargazing events, rocket launches and even some brand-new missions on a quest to…

a colourful encounter between river and sea

Snapped by Landsat 8, an Earth-observation satellite that's operated by NASA and the United States Geological Survey, here is a stunning scene where the Gulf of Mexico meets with the Suwannee River. This striking image recently won this year’s Envisioning Research image competition held by North California State University. As water flows through the Suwannee River, it collects organic matter that degrades into a tannic substance that provides the dark colour permeating through the green-blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico.…

piece of orion’s puzzle

NASA’s Orion spacecraft will become a powerhouse for space exploration in the near future. Pictured here, the European-built Service Module can be seen on its way to Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, United States, from Hamburg, Germany. The European Service Module (ESM) was loaded onto an Antonov An-124 Ruslan aircraft and flown over the Atlantic in preparation for Exploration Mission-1, the first integrated flight test of NASA’s Deep Space Exploration Systems. The ESM in this case will propel, power and cool Orion during flight.…

square icebergs, straight ahead

NASA’s Operation IceBridge undergoes airborne surveys of the Earth’s polar ice. In this image, scientists got the chance to investigate the northern Antarctic Peninsula on 16 October 2018 and spotted these unusually rectangular icebergs. This strange icy platform was captured by IceBridge senior support scientist Jeremy Harbeck who was particularly interested in the A68 iceberg, which is the size of the state of Delaware. Harbeck was surprised as he had "never seen an iceberg with two corners at such right angles."…

bon voyage bepicolombo

The collaborative mission between ESA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to travel to Mercury, BepiColombo, has recently begun its journey from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. At the tip of the Ariane 5 rocket was the spacecraft (inset), now on its way to one of the least-studied planets in the Solar System to take on the dangerous terrain close to the Sun. Reaching Mercury will take the best part of five years after flybys of Earth, Venus and Mercury before it can enter orbit.…
