  3. France-United States space cooperation- InSight Mars exploration mission,first tests of French SEIS seismometer successful

    Publishing date:

    December 5, 2018

    After the excitement and tension of its successful landing on Mars on Monday 26 November, InSight has started powering up and checking out its subsystems. The SEIS1 seismometer, supplied by CNES as lead contractor with the IPGP global physics institute in Paris as principal investigator working with teams at the French national scientific research centre CNRS, was tested out on Friday 30 November. Everything is nominal and the instrument is in great shape.

  4. France-United States space cooperation- French science on Mars- InSight lands on Mars with French SEIS seismometer

    Publishing date:

    November 27, 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?

    February 4, 2020

    À travers l’atterrisseur InSight, les scientifiques du monde entier peuvent écouter la planète Mars bouger et même respirer. Pour comprendre comment son sol et son atmosphère peuvent s’influencer mutuellement, nous en discutons avec le planétologue Aymeric Spiga du Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique et Francis Rocard, responsable des programmes d’exploration du Système solaire au CNES.

  8. What do we know about Mars’ interior?

    Publishing date:

    November 26, 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.

  9. CNES and NASA on Mars- SEIS seismometer for InSight mission delivered to Toulouse Space Centre

    Publishing date:

    July 23, 2015

    Monday 20 July, the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP1) and contractor Sodern delivered the SEIS Mars seismometer to CNES. SEIS is a titanium sphere housing three very-broad-band seismic sensors that form the core of the instrument. Once on the surface of Mars, these miniaturized sensors packed with technology will detect even the smallest seismic waves to determine if there is any seismic activity on the Red Planet. SEIS is the result of a close 10-year collaboration between CNES and IPGP that is set to depart on NASA’s InSight mission to Mars on 4 March 2016.

  15. Que sait-on de l’intérieur de Mars?

    Publishing date:

    November 26, 2018

    Les premières missions à atteindre le sol de Mars remontent à quarante ans. Pourtant aujourd’hui encore, il reste encore beaucoup de zones d’ombres sous sa couche d’oxyde de fer. Pour mieux comprendre la nature de la planète, l’atterrisseur InSight embarque à son bord de quoi forer jusqu’à 5 mètres de profondeur, et écouter le sol sur des milliers de kilomètres. À l'occasion de son arrivée, nous discutons de ce que l’on sait déjà et des découvertes espérées avec Francis Rocard, responsable des programmes d’exploration du Système solaire du CNES, et Philippe Laudet, chef de Projet SEIS pour InSight et responsable du programme Astronomie et Astrophysique du CNES.
