  10. ANGELS, France's first industrial nanosatellite, extends the scope of space IoT

    Publishing date:

    October 13, 2020

    Five times more powerful and 10 times smaller than its predecessors, ANGELS has been designed to address the current challenges of New Space: miniaturization, scaled-up performance and very low consumption. This technological wonder is opening up its services to current users and offering IoT players premium access to this new connectivity. ANGELS gives a first taste of the opportunities provided by Kinéis, the first constellation of European nanosatellites dedicated to IoT. Carrying a state-of-the-art ARGOS instrument, ANGELS is the operationnal proof of the success of the French nanosatellite sector, supported by CNES and leading manufacturers such as Thales Alenia Space, HEMERIA and Syrlinks.

  20. New simulated weightlessness study- CNES and MEDES further understanding of the physiological effects of microgravity

    Publishing date:

    February 20, 2019

    Right now and until 29 March 2019, 20 volunteers are taking part in a new study into simulated weightlessness using the innovative method of dry immersion. Led by CNES and conducted at its MEDES space clinic, based at Rangueil Hospital in Toulouse, the study aims to simulate the effects of weightlessness on the human body. It will, in particular, enable us to further our understanding of specific physiological mechanisms and thereby improve conditions for astronauts during manned spaceflights.
