    1. European planetary exploration reborn with Venus Express

      Publishing date:

      July 3, 2006

      Launched in November 2005, the Venus Express space probe has been studying the “morning star” since April 2006. Armed with a full suite of science instruments, the main ones developed with CNES support, it is today revealing Venus in all its surprising complexity. Earth and Venus are of similar size and mass, and they move around the Sun on relatively similar orbits.

    20. L'exploration de Neptune

      Publishing date:

      August 6, 2003

      Les observations de la planète Uranus, à la fin du XVIIIème siècle, laissent les scientifiques perplexes : la planète ne se trouve pas là où elle devrait être ! Des écarts inexpliqués entre sa position réelle sur son orbite et celle déduite par la théorie suggèrent l'existence d'un astre inconnu, plus lointain, exerçant une force gravitationnelle perturbatrice. En 1846, un astronome allemand observe pour la première fois la planète recherchée, cause de cette anomalie, à partir des calculs fait par Urbain Leverrier. Elle est baptisée Neptune.
