  2. Aurores boréales: ce qu'elles nous apprennent sur le climat et la météo de l'espace

    Publishing date:

    January 10, 2021

    Que l’on soit chercheur ou non, la première réponse qui vient à l’esprit est qu'on étudie les aurores boréales « parce que c’est beau ». Si cela représente souvent une motivation profonde et première pour les chercheurs travaillant sur le sujet, il y a d’autres raisons qui nous amènent à observer les aurores qui se produisent sur Terre… ou sur d’autres planètes.

  3. 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.

  4. Royaume-Uni- Faslane: la base navale sous-marine écossaise au rôle géostratégique

    Publishing date:

    May 18, 2020

    A l’ouest de l’Ecosse sur un affluent du Firth of Clyde, la base militaire navale de Faslane jouent un rôle majeur dans l’affirmation de la puissance mondiale du Royaume-Uni. Aux cotés de Portsmouth et Plymouth/Devonport, toutes les deux situées dans le sud du pays, c’est en effet la 3em base de la Navy britannique. Sa spécificité réside dans sa spécialisation fonctionnelle : c’est la seule grande base sous-marine du pays. Elle abrite en particulier les quatre sous-marins nucléaires porteurs des missiles balistiques. Créée durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale face au IIIème Reich, elle a été choisie durant la Guerre froide pour accueillir les SNLE pour des raisons géostratégiques : la proximité de la région avec l’Atlantique Nord face à la flotte russe basée à Mourmansk-Polyarny. Son existence et sa localisation soulignent l’importance de ces systèmes d’armes nucléaires dans les rapports de force géostratégiques mondiaux.
