ESA – Week In Images

As usual I’m posting the week’s images from ESA. There are spectacular images of solar flares, Mars from the Express orbiter and a close up of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.

  1. The comparison between a solar flare and the size of Earth is a very sobering image
    (How did they get away with the film “Sunshine”????)

      1. Sunshine is a 2007 British-American science fiction thriller film directed by Danny Boyle. The film was adapted from a screenplay written by Alex Garland about the crew of a spacecraft on a dangerous mission to the Sun. In 2057, with the Earth in peril from the dying Sun, the crew is sent on a mission to reignite the star with a nuclear bomb that has a mass equivalent to Manhattan Island….. Copy & pasted from Wiki.
        Neat uh?
