International symposium “50 Years of Plate Tectonics: Then, Now, and Beyond” on June 25-26, 2018

It took decades of research to accumulate the observations that led to the emergence of the theory of plate tectonics in the late 1960’s. Many contributions participated in its final acceptance — or “birth” — with seminal publications in (1) 1966 on the perfectly symmetrical distributions of magnetic anomalies on either side of the East-Pacific rise by Walter Pitman and […]

NASA CubeSats Steer Toward Mars

  NASA has achieved a first for the class of tiny spacecraft known as CubeSats, which are opening new access to space. Over the past week, two CubeSats called MarCO-A and MarCO-B have been firing their propulsion systems to guide themselves toward Mars. This process, called a trajectory correction maneuver, allows a spacecraft to refine its path to Mars following […]

International Conference “History of the neutrino”

Neutrinos play an exceptional role as well in particle or nuclear physics as in astrophysics. The purpose of the Conference is to cover the main steps of their History since the brilliant and inspired idea of Pauli in December 1930. Though trying to cover all the facets of this fascinating particle, it should be considered as a contribution to the […]
