Research by the team PLANETO covers a vast area encompassing the study of planets, comets and meteorites in the solar system. It is done through the exploration of the solar system by spacecraft launched in particular by the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA.
The Interstellar team studies the chemical and physical processes at work in the interstellar medium, with a particular emphasis on astrochemistry during the star formation stages, from parent molecular clouds to solar system bodies. Our main research topics are : Astrochemistry - Star formation - Molecular collisions - Cold Universe.
The Sheraps group study surroundings of compact objects such as black holes and neutron stars as well as jets emitted by accretion discs which are formed around these objects
The main research goal of the Odyssey group is to understand how stellar objects forms and how they evolve into planetary systems, using multiscale and multitechnique observations and modelling.
