  11. Parasol livre ses premières images

    Publishing date:

    January 18, 2005

    Les 1ères images produites par le microsatellite Parasol, en orbite depuis le 18 décembre dernier, ont été acquises le 7 janvier. Parasol fournira ainsi aux scientifiques des éléments pour mieux appréhender les caractéristiques physiques et micro-physiques des nuages et aérosols. Ces images valident en outre le bon fonctionnement du satellite, de sa charge utile et des moyens au sol.
