This lecture will be given in French
By Prof. Claude Nicollier, former European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut, honorary professor of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, member of the AAE.
This presentation will present our space environment in several ways. We will talk about the influence of certain characteristics and properties of space on the Earth and on life on its surface: Variations of the Sun and orbital parameters of the Earth have had significant climatic impacts in the past, and will continue to have them in the future. There will also be a serious problem of space debris and the measures put in place to prevent uncontrolled proliferation of space debris. Finally, the possibility of asteroid impacts on Earth will be presented, with the development of techniques for early detection of a dangerous intruder and, in some cases, its deflection to avoid a collision with our planet.
