    February 7, 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 73- Healthcare: New insights from space

    Type of content :

    Publishing date:

    August 11, 2017

    France and CNES were early pioneers in this field and space medicine experiments were already on Jean-Loup Chrétien’s schedule when he became the first French astronaut to fly in space in 1982. CNES has been a continuing catalyst for research ever since, working with a range of partners in the field of health and developing multiple experiments that are now running permanently on spacecraft. Far from the fears it inspired in the early years, space is today delivering new insights into health.

    November 3, 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.

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

    Type of content :

    Publishing date:

    July 24, 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.

  18. CNESMAG 84- Biodiversity: building resilience

    Type of content :

    Publishing date:

    May 29, 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.

  19. CNESMAG 83- Agriculture: remote sensing raises the bar

    Type of content :

    Publishing date:

    February 14, 2020

    Earth-observation data acquired from orbit across the wavelength spectrum enable the status of crop fields, pastures and water resources to be monitored in real time all over the globe and harvests and yields to be estimated. Space is also easing agriculture’s environmental footprint by aiding a more-integrated approach to managing inputs, fertilisers, phytosanitary products and water, while reducing energy consumption. As a tool supporting a broad range of policy initiatives on climate, the environment, security, transport, agriculture and the digital divide to name a few, space and the technological advances it is driving are a great asset that will help agriculture to rise to the demographic, health, environmental and climate challenges of the 21st century.
