    Date de publication:

    28 Septembre 2006

    Malaria, dengue fever, Rift Valley fever, West Nile virus and Chikungunya are all mosquito-borne diseases. What can we do to control these insects capable of spreading viruses throughout entire regions? Emerging alternatives to aggressive solutions are increasingly relying on space-based tools. Culling livestock or eradicating mosquitoes across an entire region is a costly business and can sometimes have harmful effects.

  11. The human odyssey revisited by space technology

    Date de publication:

    27 Décembre 2006

    What did the different branches of our distant hominid cousins have in common? To answer this question, 2 fossil skulls were scanned on 20 February by a machine called XtremeCT, initially designed for space medicine. The results of this unique scientific initiative were presented last week. A few millimetres under the surface of our teeth is an interface between two types of tissue: enamel, which gives us our gleaming white smile; and dentin, which underlies the enamel. The features of this interface are pretty constant within the same species, since they are genetically encoded.
