  7. Comment le vivant s’adapte dans l’espace

    Publishing date:

    April 19, 2021

    Jadis, les grands explorateurs, navigateurs, conquérants de l’impossible ont parcouru des distances incroyables au travers des mers et océans, propulsés par leurs progrès techniques. Les terres inexploitées et inexplorées par la civilisation ont de ce fait « disparu » de la surface du globe. Aujourd’hui, les astronautes s’élèvent dans l’espace et séjournent six mois en orbite de la Terre à bord de la station spatiale internationale, pratiquement libres de toute gravité. Demain, les séjours spatiaux vers la Lune ou Mars pourraient durer plusieurs années. De gros changements pour le corps humain.

  12. CNESMAG 70- ISS, Science and people

    Publishing date:

    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.

    Publishing date:

    October 12, 2016

    À 400 km d’altitude, de sa vue imprenable sur la Terre, la Station spatiale internationale vivra fin 2016 deux temps forts, suivis de près par la France : l'arrivée de 3 astronautes dont un Français, Thomas Pesquet, astronaute de l'ESA qui participera à la mission Proxima, conçue et préparée notamment par le CNES et le Cadmos. En décembre, l’enjeu sera cette fois plus stratégique : à Lucerne, en Suisse, la conférence ministérielle de l’ESA devra préciser ses intentions sur sa contribution à l’ISS après 2020.
