Inter-team seminar: François Colas – Observatoire de Paris

We had the honor of hosting François COLAS, CNRS Research Director, astronomer at the Paris observatory and responsible for the T1 Pic du Midi telescope for the inter-team seminar on May 2, 2019. He gave us a presentation on “FRIPON: the network to connect the world of asteroids to that of meteorites”.

Summary :
The FRIPON network (www.fripon.org) is now operational in France and extends to Europe, its purpose is to detect racing cars (very large shooting stars) which pass over France and which can be the source of meteorites. I will show how it works and the first results. In addition to the 100 French cameras, we have radio receivers which use the GRAVES military radar located on the aerial bass of Dijon. We observe the echoes of the radar on the ion trails of the meteors, the power and the wavelength of the radar makes it possible to observe new phenomena: fragmentation, oscillations, etc …
a review of these observations which still give us problems of interpretation. I will finish by mentioning the Vigie-Ciel participatory science program (www.vigie-ciel.fr) with the organization of our first research in the field of meteorites.
