The Danish ship Vaedderen is preparing to embark from Copenhagen later today on its science expedition trip, Galathea 3. As part of the 'Satellite Eye for Galathea 3' project, ESA's Envisat satellite will acquire data along the ship's sailing route throughout its eight-month voyage.
Scientists say the recent tear in the Earth's continental crust near the Red Sea in Africa's Afar desert could isolate Ethiopia and Eritrea from the rest of Africa and could eventually form a new ocean, according to an article published today in the journal Nature.
The European Space Agency donated a composite satellite image of global land cover provided by its Envisat satellite to the United Nations in Geneva, as a testimony to the current state of our planet, to be handed down to future generations.

ESA has for the first time acquired and processed images sent by ALOS, Japan's four-tonne satellite dedicated to land-based Earth Observation, including views of Italy, The Netherlands and Norway.
ESA is supporting ALOS as a 'Third Party Mission', which means the agency is utilising its multi-mission ground segment of existing European facilities and expertise to acquire, process and distribute data from the satellite.
