  4. CNESMAG 85- Exploring life's origins:the ultimate quest

    Date de publication:

    24 Juillet 2020

    Where did life come from? Are we alone in the universe? These two closely related questions have reached beyond the realm of philosophy and are now being subjected to scientific investigation in more precise terms. Attempting to answer them is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle in which each piece lies at the end of a treasure hunt. This summer, three space missions are set to depart for Mars in search of new clues to solve this rebus.Thanks to the sum of talents of the scientists, engineers and technicians working in our research laboratories, agencies and private firms, Europe and France are pivotal players in this fantastic quest to discover our origins and, in the final analysis, reveal the reasons behind our existence.

  5. Introduction

    Date de publication:

    3 Janvier 2020

    Paradoxically, the “empty space” surrounding the Earth is filled with a large number of objects which, owing to their very high velocity, represent a collision risk for space missions that cannot be ignored. These objects also represent a risk on Earth itself, in the event of pieces falling to the ground.

    Date de publication:

    18 Décembre 2019

    The lander on China’s Chang’e 6 mission will be carrying the DORN radon detection instrument with the goal of studying its outgassing from the lunar regolith and how this radioactive gas and other species like water are transported in the Moon’s exosphere. Launch is planned in 2023.

  9. What do we know about Mars’ interior?

    Date de publication:

    26 Novembre 2018

    The first missions to reach the surface of Mars date back 40 years, but many mysteries still lie beneath its top layer of iron oxide. To delve deeper into the red planet, the InSight lander is carrying a system able to drill down to five metres and sound Mars’ surface over a radius of thousands of kilometres. Following its arrival on Mars, we talk about what we already know and what we hope to discover there with CNES’s Francis Rocard, head of Solar System Exploration programmes, and Philippe Laudet, SEIS project leader for InSight and head of the agency’s Astronomy and Astrophysics programme.

    Date de publication:

    27 Novembre 2018

    Monday 26 November at 20:54 CET, InSight (INterior exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) landed on Mars with the French SEIS seismometer (Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure), the mission’s main instrument, in the western portion of Elysium Planitia. Launched on the night of 5 May from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, InSight is now all set to begin its two-year mission to probe the red planet’s deep interior and attempt to answer the question taxing the minds of planetologists everywhere: Mars may have been habitable, but did it ever actually support life?

  15. 30th World Astronaut Congress- 20th anniversary of the Cité de l’espace- Toulouse at the centre of the galaxy!

    Date de publication:

    16 Octobre 2017

    The 30th World Astronaut Congress is taking place at the Cité de l’espace in Toulouse this week from Monday 16 to Friday 20 October. CNES President Jean-Yves Le Gall, who has followed the flights of all of France’s astronauts for more than 30 years, gave a speech at the opening of the event. Toulouse, Europe’s space capital, was chosen to host this year’s congress as the city concentrating the very best scientific, technological and industrial expertise in space, and as a symbol of European excellence. Jean-Yves Le Gall hailed the success of the Cité de l’espace that is also celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. CNES was closely involved in founding the space theme park that is doing such a great job bringing space culture to a wide audience and the agency’s President stressed its role in stimulating the public’s keen interest in French spaceflight missions.

  16. France-United States space cooperation- Launch of OSIRIS-REx mission

    Date de publication:

    9 Septembre 2016

    The OSIRIS-REx mission was launched Friday 9 September at 01:05 from the Cape Canaveral base in Florida, on board an Atlas V launcher. In an absolute first, the mission probe will rendezvous with asteroid Bennu in August 2018 to conduct a detailed study of this small near-Earth object, map its surface and then perform a rapid “Touch-and-Go” in order to take samples such as regolith and return them to Earth in 2023.

  18. Interview: Comet Dust in Earth’s Atmosphere

    Date de publication:

    12 Juin 2017

    Even after its mission ended, the Rosetta probe is still teaching us a lot about comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. On 9th June, Bernard Marty from the Centre de recherches pétrographiques et géochimiques (joint institute between the CNRS and the University of Lorraine) and his colleagues from the Rosina consortium (PI: K. Altwegg) published new results in Science, showing a quantitative link between comets and our planet’s atmosphere.
