NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has photographed the farthest active inbound comet ever seen, at a whopping distance of 1.5 billion miles from the Sun (beyond Saturn's orbit). Slightly warmed by the remote Sun, it has already begun to develop an 80,000-mile-wide fuzzy cloud of dust, called a coma, enveloping a tiny, solid nucleus of frozen gas and dust. These observations represent the earliest signs of activity ever seen from a comet entering the solar system's planetary zone for the first time.
I think Cassini/Huygens has been one of Nasa-Esa missions ever.
All these things are amazing. Shows how far science has come over the last 50-60 years.
The Cassini mission was just so interesting, the Huygens probe onto the Titan surface was amazing
This was really big on our news.

Scientists at the Brown University for the first time have created the first quantitative map of water and its chemical building blocks trapped in the uppermost portion of the Moon’s soil. According to scientists, the study may prove useful for lunar explorers.
Here, scientists used data from NASA’s Moon Mineralogy Mapper, which flew aboard India’s Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft. They then measured how much water is present on a global scale.
Study’s lead author, Shuai Li said, “The signature of water is present nearly everywhere on the lunar surface. It is not limited to the polar regions as previously reported. The amount of water increases toward the poles and does not show significant difference among distinct compositional terrains.”
