  7. A remote star with a magnetic activity cycle similar to the Sun by COROT

    Publishing date:

    August 26, 2010

    Thanks to CoRoT (Convection, Rotation & planetary Transits) satellite products, an international team, including French investigators of the CEA, the OMP and the Observatory of Paris, discovered a remote star (100 light years) with a sunlike magnetic activity cycle. This result, obtained for the first time thanks to the stellar seismology technique, was published in Science in August 27th, 2010.

  9. From Corot 16-b to Corot 24-b and 24-c

    Publishing date:

    June 14, 2011

    The CoRoT satellite identified 10 new exoplanets by transit, then confirmed by ground observations. Seven of them are "hot Jupiters", sometimes with unusual characteristics, and the three left have smaller masses: one slightly smaller than Saturn and two Neptune-like exoplanets orbiting around the same star. Those discoveries were announced during the second CoRoT Symposium, in June 14th-17th, 2011 in Marseille, France.

  10. DORN, the French instrument on the Chang’e 6 mission

    Publishing date:

    December 18, 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.

  13. United States- Southern Manhattan: Between the Global and the Local- The transformations of a multifunctional urban space.

    Publishing date:

    July 10, 2019

    Between the Hudson River (to the west) and the East River, the southern tip of Manhattan Island is the historic center of New York City, veritable global city, at the heart of the American megalopolis. As often as it's associated with monotony or nonchalance, it's linked to abundance and luxury--New York is a city of contrasts, which is constantly reinventing itself. Inhabited, occupied, while simultaneously engaged in globalized phenomena (economic competition with other global cities and increasing ecological risks also confront it), this space is situated at the junction of global, metropolitan, and local scales and forces. In this context, the city is adapting and transforming itself in response to these stakes, all the while preserving its unique character.

  15. 2010 Concordiasi campaign in Mac Murdo: the Antartic under observation

    Publishing date:

    March 22, 2010

    The objective of the Concordiasi mission is to understand better the enlargement of the hole in the Antarctica's ozone layer during each austral spring and to increase our knowledge on climate in those regions. To study the Earth's climate, the atmosphere has to be studied as a whole. Studying the poles is particularly important because of their specific sensitivity to climate changes and the poor frequency of the observations performed by the standard meteorological systems.

  17. Cassini reveals giant dust storms on Titan

    Publishing date:

    October 5, 2018

    These giant dust storms seen at the equator on Titan rise as far as 10 kilometres above the surface. Mars and Earth are no longer the only worlds in the solar system where such phenomena are known to occur. We put three questions to Sébastien Rodriguez, a planetologist at the IPGP global physics institute in Paris and lead author of this discovery published in the journal Nature Geoscience on 24 September.

  18. 2011: Developing more accurate accelerometers

    Publishing date:

    September 20, 2011

    For the first time, a team of French physicists, supported by CNES and ESA, has succeeded in developing a vibration-resistant accelerometer. Tested in parabolic flight, the prototype was able to measure infinitesimal accelerations, which until now was only possible in the laboratory. This could pave the way for the development of portable cold atom accelerometers and thus improved positioning and geoligical prospecting systems. It could also make it possible to directly test aspects of Einstein's general theory of relativity. The results are published in the journal Nature Communications.

  19. Bangalore: une technopole indienne entre dynamisme, inégalités et saturation

    Publishing date:

    June 30, 2019

    Mégalopole de dix millions d’habitants, Bangalore est fréquemment présentée dans les médias comme la « Silicon Valley » indienne. On retrouve dans cette métropole une forte concentration de sociétés informatiques. Elles peuvent s'appuyer sur un important complexe militaro-industriel hérité de la colonisation, sur des centres universitaires et un vaste marché. Sur le plan spatial, on observe une concentration des entreprises dans des parcs technologiques qui profitent d'un effet cumulatif. Cependant la ville connaît également les problèmes de la plupart des villes de l’Inde, comme une forte croissance de la population, des difficultés de gestion des ressources ou des infrastructures et des problèmes de pollution. Le boom technologique s’y inscrit dans de vives spécialisations fonctionnelles et une ségrégation socio-spatiale particulièrement marquée.

  20. Rosetta mission extended 9 months

    Publishing date:

    June 23, 2015

    ESA has confirmed the extension of the Rosetta mission for 9 months until September 2016. The orbiter’s trajectory could also be altered to set it down on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
