    Jwst witnesses the destruction of the equivalent of an ocean every month in space
    An international team involving French scientists* from Université Paris-Saclay, Université Toulouse III - Paul Sabatier, the joint laboratory INCLASS (IAS/ACRI-ST), the Observatoire de Paris-PSL, Université Grenoble Alpes, the CNRS, and CNES, has shed light on the destruction and reformation of a large quantity of water in a planet-forming disk located at the heart of the Orion Nebula. The study has just been published in Nature Astronomy.

    A great success for Beyond EPICA third drilling campaign: reached 1836 meters of depth in the Antarctic ice sheet
    The international research project Beyond EPICA - Oldest Ice funded by the European Commission with 11 million euros and coordinated by the Institute of Polar Sciences of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR), aims to obtain data on the evolution of temperatures, the composition of the atmosphere and the carbon cycle, by going back in time 1.5 million years through analyzing an ice core extracted from the depths of the Antarctic ice sheet. By taking the legacy of last year's achievement, the complex deep ice drilling system worked days and nights, reaching a depth of 1836.18 meters by the end of this 23/24 campaign. In parallel with drilling activities, in the new processing trench at Little Dome C almost 1367 m of ice cores have been processed this season and sent to Mario Zucchelli Station to reach Europe.

    Discovery of a large hydrogen reservoir in an underground mine in Albania
    An international scientific team, including researchers from the Institut des Sciences de la Terre (ISTerre* - CNRS/IRD/UGA/ Univ. Gustave Eiffel/USMB), has just discovered a reservoir of natural hydrogen in the depths of a chromite mine in Albania. This discovery, which opens up new prospects for the exploration of natural hydrogen, is the subject of an article published in Science magazine on February 8.
