  1. Source of Saturn’s kilometric radiation revealed

    Publishing date:

    November 13, 2018

    Using data from the Cassini mission, scientists are unravelling the mechanisms that drive auroral radio emissions at Saturn’s poles, which are key to understanding certain characteristics of the giant ringed planet. Laurent Lamy, an astrophysicist at the LESIA space and astrophysics instrumentation research laboratory (Paris Observatory) and lead author of an article on the subject in the journal Science, gives us the details.

    The docking of the NG-16 resupply spacecraft with the ISS in August marked the arrival in orbit of the latest French experiments designed by CNES as part of the Alpha mission. After 152 days in space, astronaut Thomas Pesquet has already completed four spacewalks and performed a host of science experiments from CADMOS/CNES and from other space agencies like ESA and NAS. His schedule is still busy.

  12. CNESMAG 89- Ballooning:a French flair

    Publishing date:

    August 4, 2021

    The intense heat, droughts, storms and typhoons disrupting the planet’s delicate climate balances come with critical risks for populations. For the past 60 years, balloons have proved a platform of choice, complementing satellites with their unique ability to stay aloft for long periods at altitudes of 20 to 40 kilometres and collect in-situ data on winds, greenhouse gases, aerosols and radiation.

    Publishing date:

    March 31, 2021

    The French Space Agency (CNES) has reported the first images obtained on Mars using the Remote Micro-Imager (RMI) of the SuperCam instrument (the French contribution to NASA JPL PERSEVERANCE Rover) during the CNES Press Conference. The instrument provides high resolution (<70 µrad per pixel) color images for planetologists.
