The 94th issue of is dedicated to the French-American spatial cooperation.

Editorial of Marie-Claude Salomé, Director of Communications :

This dialogue between our two nations is of course not new; in fact, it began 60 years ago. It has since been crowned by many achievements together of which we can be proud, such as robotic exploration with marvels of technology like Curiosity and Perseverance, Thomas Pesquet’s flight as the first European astronaut aboard SpaceX’s Crew Dragon or the study of climate change from space thanks to altimetry satellites like TOPEX/
