 Automatic translationAutomatic translation  

The telescopes are the eyes of the world.
Corot the first space telescope to track the exoplanets is French. Corot is responsible for detecting exoplanets in other solar systems and explore the mysteries concealed in the heart of stars.
The Spitzer Space Telescope is the largest infrared telescope launched by NASA.

 

The Hubble Space Telescope is a telescope in orbit 560 kilometers above sea level, it completes one revolution of the Earth every 100 minutes.
PAMELA (Payload for Antimatter Exploration and Light-nuclei Astrophysics) is an orbiting observatory designed to determine the characteristics of dark matter.

 

The space telescope XMM-Newton is the largest X-ray Observatory ever built.
The Planck space observatory captures the cosmic microwave background (CMB).
The SOHO spacecraft is designed to study the Sun's internal structure, its warm atmosphere, the origins of the solar wind.
