What is an RSS feed?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds allow you to receive updates from websites without having to visit each site to see if there is new content.
Using RSS feeds you can now receive the latest headlines from ESA as soon as they are published. ESA is offering a number of RSS feeds, from its top news to updates on various specific programmes and projects.
How do I start using RSS feeds?
To receive RSS feeds you need a news reader. This software checks RSS feeds from all over the world and lets you read any articles that have been added to them. There are many different kinds of news reader, some are accessed via a browser, while others are downloadable applications which automatically deliver feeds to your PC or portable device. We have included links on the right to a few popular ones. Each works in a slightly different way so please consult their instructions.
Once you have installed your chosen news reader, you can start to search your favourite websites and to subscribe to receive updates on the subjects that interest you.
Subscribing to ESA feeds
The list of RSS feeds currently offered by ESA is available on the right. You can subscribe for free to as many feeds as you like. To subscribe to a feed, click on the link on the right, then (depending on your chosen news reader) either drag the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader, or cut and paste the URL into a new feed in your news reader.
