  2. CNESMAG 86- Taranis:the hidden side of storms

    Type de contenu :

    Date de publication:

    3 Novembre 2020

    Sprites, elves, jets… few people know that scientists habitually use such other-worldly words to describe what are less poetically called transient luminous events or TLEs, the flashes and electromagnetic emissions that occur during active storms just a few tens of kilometres over our heads. But what are the physical processes and mechanisms behind these phenomena discovered barely 30 years ago? Such are the challenges facing the French Taranis satellite that will be riding aloft this autumn atop a Vega launcher from the Guiana Space Centre.

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

    Type de contenu :

    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.

  4. CNESMAG 81- Wind and Waves:an enigmatic duo

    Type de contenu :

    Date de publication:

    6 Septembre 2019

    Wind and waves—an enigmatic duo that immediately conjures up days spent at the beach. Yet behind the holiday images hide the keys to our planet’s climate. CNESMAG have focused on such phenomena, emphasising the vital role that satellites play in their observation. That’s because only satellites can provide global data on land masses and oceans over very long periods of time. All of which allows us to gain an ever better understanding of wind and wave changes and of their impact on our planet’s climate.

  5. CNESMAG 79- Defence: space in demand

    Type de contenu :

    Date de publication:

    7 Février 2019

    On 22 February 1986, more than 30 years ago, the launch of SPOT 1, the nation’s first Earth-observation satellite conceived and developed by CNES, immediately caught the attention of our armed forces. They subsequently decided to invest in their own space-based observation assets and since 1995, the Helios satellites—recently joined by CSO-1, the first of their successors—are our ‘military eyes’.

  7. CNESMAG 84- Biodiversity: building resilience

    Type de contenu :

    Date de publication:

    29 Mai 2020

    For close on 20 years, the space community has strived to document, map and observe biodiversity. Satellites are watching over forests, measuring soil moisture, tracking habitats and hundreds of species to analyse their behaviour. New hyperspectral technologies are set to deliver deeper insights into forest and cropland biomass and the carbon sinks they represent. The time for alerting is behind us; now is the time for action, and CNES is gearing up to play its part in building a new resilience for the future.

    Type de contenu :

    Date de publication:

    13 Juin 2017

    In 50 years, space has shifted up a gear, as innovation has revolutionized launchers and satellites, our planet’s climate has come under constant surveillance from Earth orbit and Mars has become the new frontier of space exploration. Indeed, faced with the rise ofemerging nations and the all-pervading influence of the United States, we must stay ahead of the game and above all we must keep inventing the future of space.

    Date de publication:

    7 Décembre 2017

    Parce que 26 des 50 variables climatiques essentielles qui décrivent le climat ne peuvent être observées que depuis l’espace, le CNES a fait de la lutte contre le changement climatique sa priorité, en coopérant avec ses partenaires internationaux pour développer des outils toujours plus performants et surtout en organisant une véritable coordination entre toutes les agences spatiales du monde entier. Parce que nous n’avons qu’une seule planète et qu’elle le vaut bien.

    Date de publication:

    3 Février 2017

    For certain, the Rosetta mission that ended last September with the orbiter impacting the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko after a controlled descent will mark the history of space exploration. Having achieved numerous firsts, collected a wealth of data and made major discoveries, this ambitious mission—a veritable space odyssey, given the length of its journey and the operational obstacles it had to overcome— has indisputably been a huge success.

    12 Octobre 2016

    Surveying Earth from its 400-kilometre vantage point in orbit, the International Space Station (ISS) is poised for two key events at the end of the year on which France will be casting a close eye. The first will see three new astronauts arriving, among them Frenchman Thomas Pesquet, who will be conducting the Proxima mission designed and planned by CNES and the CADMOS centre for the development of microgravity applications and space operations (see p. 8). And in December, a more strategic event will be taking place in Lucerne, Switzerland, where the ESA council meeting at ministerial level is set to decide on its future contributions to the ISS after 2020.
