uclspacedomainThe UCL Space Domain is looking for your best Space images to create a mosaic image of London taken from the ISS and put on our new Space Domain T-Shirts and Tote Bags. If you have a great image that encapsulates the Space Domain or the research that is going on at UCL please add it to our mosaic here.
Dimension: 72 x 48 (3,456 tiles)

guest ExoMars2020_Rover_on_Mars_20170418_1280.jpgThe Rosalind Franklin (ExoMars 2020) rover is due for launch in July 2020. It carries the PanCam instrument provided by a team led by UCL's Mullard Space Science Laboratory.
Artist's impression of the Euclid spacecraft.
Euclid is a medium-class mission in ESA's Cosmic Vision to investigate the expansion of our Universe over the past ten billion years, probing cosmic epochs from before the expansion started to accelerate, all the way to the present.
In the background, a composite image of the massive galaxy cluster MACS J0717.5+3745 based on X-ray data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory (shown in blue and purple hues) and optical observations performed by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

The image is of the 3D image of the electron density with a bivariate spline fitting surface.
In both case, the time 06:06:30 is 20 minutes after the earthquake occurrence.
TEC means Total Electron Content, which is almost the same with the electron density.
The earthquake and the change in the ionosphere followed by it have been studied intensively by many researchers.

the electron density in the ionosphere on 11th March 2011 near Japan.
The red star mark expresses the location of the epicentre.
On that day, Japan experienced a quite huge earthquake, magnitude was larger that 9.
guest MSSL JPA instrument results following 1986 Halley fly-byMSSL provided the JPA instrument on board the ESA Giotto mission to encounter Comet Halley. This image (provided by MSSL John Raymont) shows the fly-by results signed by all involved.
