  4. CNES’s DECLIC instrument en route to the International Space Station

    Publishing date:

    October 18, 2016

    First launched in 2009, the DECLIC scientific instrument was recovered and returned to Earth by NASA in 2014 after a five-year stay on the International Space Station (ISS) for maintenance by CNES, which designed and built the instrument. The result of a joint science effort with NASA, DECLIC is now on its way back to the station aboard the Cygnus resupply vehicle successfully sent aloft by an Antares launcher during the night of Monday 17 to Tuesday 18 October. Scheduled to dock with the station during the night of Saturday 22 October, Cygnus is also carrying scientific equipment for Thomas Pesquet’s Proxima mission.

  7. Thomas Pesquet post-mission tour- Proxima: CNES serving science

    Publishing date:

    October 3, 2017

    Tuesday 3 October at the Toulouse Space Centre (CST), Thomas Pesquet came to see the managers of the experiments developed by CNES for the Proxima mission. Together, they reviewed how the experiments went on the ground and aboard the International Space Station (ISS), and discussed initial lessons learned. CADMOS is the unit at CNES that developed and monitored the seven CNES experiments on Thomas’ mission. No fewer than 35 engineers were involved. For the CNES team, Proxima is a total success that has confirmed the expertise, technical know-how and passion driving the French space sector.

    February 3, 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.

    October 12, 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.
