  3. Jupiter's powerful winds

    Publishing date:

    March 7, 2018

    To understand the dynamics of Jupiter's winds means to unveil the composition and formation of the gaseous planets. Thanks to the measurements of the JUNO mission, the research teams produced key results, published on 7 March 2018 in Nature. Tristan Guillot, one of the main authors, and Yamila Miguel give us details about these discoveries.

  5. COROT discovers a new stellar oddity

    Publishing date:

    October 6, 2008

    CNES’s space telescope has discovered a new object so exotic that astronomers aren’t sure whether to call it a planet. Named COROT-Exo-3b, the oddity is about the size of Jupiter, only 20 times more massive.

  6. Juno unveils some of Jupiter's secrets

    Publishing date:

    July 3, 2017

    NASA’s Juno probe has been studying Jupiter’s structure and composition since July 2016. Its orbital trajectory brings it between the planet and its rings at an altitude of 5,000 km. During its mission, it will complete a total of 32 orbits before dropping into the planet’s atmosphere in 2021. Several papers have just been published about the first 2 flyovers. Tristan Guillot is an astrophysicist at the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur in Nice, France; he co-authored 3 of these papers and helps us understand the probe’s first results.

  7. Juno découvre un nouveau visage à Jupiter

    Publishing date:

    July 3, 2017

    Depuis juillet 2016, la sonde Juno de la NASA étudie de très près la structure et la composition de Jupiter. Avec sa trajectoire qui lui permet de passer entre la planète et ses anneaux à 5000 km d’altitude, elle réalisera un total de 32 orbites avant de plonger dans la planète en 2021. Plusieurs articles scientifiques viennent d’être publiés sur les 2 premiers survols de Juno. Tristan Guillot, astrophysicien à l’Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur à Nice, est co-auteur de trois de ces articles et nous explique les premiers résultats de la sonde.
