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

      Publishing date:

      September 6, 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.

    3. France-United States space cooperation- French science instrument on InSight‘hears’ sound of Martian winds for the first time

      Publishing date:

      December 10, 2018

      Teams at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, have begun checking out InSight on Mars after the excitement and tension of its successful landing on Monday 26 November. These operations have revealed what wind sounds like on Mars—a world first—thanks to recordings by two instruments on the lander, one of them the French SEIS seismometer.

    4. 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.

    15. 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.

    16. Why is there so little water left on Mars?

      Publishing date:

      June 24, 2021

      Mars is known for its thin atmosphere, where CO2 dominates and provides most of the atmospheric mass and pressure. In fact, the pressure is similar to that in the Earth’s stratosphere, which is a layer of the atmosphere, at more than 30km above the surface.

      The 13th International Conference on Space Optics (ICSO), co-organized by CNES and ESA, is being held virtually from 30 March to 2 April. Since 1991, ICSO is the must-attend event for optical, optoelectronic and photonic technologies for space applications. Opening the proceedings, CNES President Jean-Yves Le Gall underlined the roles played by these technologies and the challenges associated with them through past, present and future accomplishments.
