     Over 2,000 satellites handle TV, imaging, weather, Earth observations, GPS and navigational data for ships, vehicles and phones. But at €50 million per launch, satellites are beyond the reach of most. All that changes with CubeSats, miniaturized modular open-source satellites that measure 10x10x10 cm and weigh no...

    French company Photonis designed Kameleon, a low-light camera that can see in color, even at night. So far, night vision cameras only allowed monochrome and shadeless images, from black to green or red. This technical prowess lies in a new ultra-sensitive CMOS sensor able to detect the smallest light particles even in...

     The French Space Agency (CNES) is working on MicroCarb, a micro satellite that will measure gas concentrations in the entire atmospheric column above every country around the globe with a precision of 1 ppm. The satellite will carry a 4-wavelength passive infrared spectrometer. It will measure the spectral radiance...

    Boeing designed what they say is “the lightest metal ever.” Microlattice is 99.99% air, which makes it light enough to float like a feather, while remaining as strong as the metal itself. The breakthrough comes from the structure of the material, inspired by human bones. This 3D open cellular polymer is composed of a...
