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

      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.

    11. CNES keeps a lookout for collisions in space

      Date de publication:

      19 Février 2009

      Last week’s collision between the Kosmos and Iridium satellites was an exceptionally rare event. But with the growing field of orbital debris now encircling the planet, the ability to predict and avert such occurrences is today a key issue. CNES is at the forefront of efforts in this respect, keeping a constant watch over 15 satellites in low-Earth orbit and performing collision-avoidance manoeuvres when necessary.
