CLASP (Chromospheric Lyman Alpha Spectro Polarimeter, NASA) is another rocket-borne instrument which objective is the measure of the polarisation of chromospheric Ly alpha radiation in order to measure the chromospheric magnetic field.

MICMOC est l’acronyme de Matière Interstellaire et Cométaire : Molécules Organiques Compexes et s’intéresse à la formation, l’évolution et la caractérisation de la matière organique extraterrestre, que celle-ci soit interstellaire ou interplanétaire (cométaire pour l’essentiel).

Euclid is an ESA mission that will map the geometry of the Dark Universe. The mission will investigate the distance-redshift relationship and the evolution of cosmic structures by measuring shapes and redshifts of galaxies and clusters of galaxies out to redshifts ~2, or equivalently to a look-back time of 10 billion years. In this way, Euclid will cover the entire period over which Dark Energy played a significant role in accelerating the expansion of the Universe.

The Sun and its corona as seen by HECOR and HEIT: preliminary results.

Launched on September 14, 2009 from White Sands Missile Range (New Mexico), the Herschel sounding rocket was carrying two experiments with strong IAS participation: HECOR and HEIT.

The BepiColombo mission was launched on October 19, 2018 for an arrival at Mercury in 2026. This ambitious mission will study all aspects of the closest planet to the sun, from interior to surface to magnetosphere. More details on the launch here.

The Mars2020 / Perseverance rover is the NASA's 2nd large-scale in situ exploration mobile robotic mission. The rover is based on the Curiosity except that the mission will have the ability to encapsulate Martian samples that could be recovered later by another so-called sample return mission. IAS was in charge of the calibration of the near-infrared IRS point spectrometer developed by LESIA and IRAP within the SuperCam instrumental consortium led by Los Alamos (USA). IRS is the first near-infrared spectrometer on the surface of Mars. It is one of Supercam's major iinstruments and allows to constrain the mineralogical composition of rocks and Martian soil. We also actively participated in the selection of the landing site.

The Japanese mission Hayabusa2 aims at studying and returning samples of the C-type asteroid "Ryugu", a first in the exploration of the Solar System. These asteroids are considered to have preserved among the most primordial materials in the solar system, and to possibly be the parent bodies of carbonaceous chondrites, primitive meteorites containing a significant fraction of organic matter (up to a few percent).
