    Asteroid ryugu: collected samples compared to probe data
    Researchers from the Lagrange laboratory (CNRS – Université Côte d'Azur – OCA) and members of the scientific team of the Hayabusa2 mission (JAXA) have compared for the first time data taken by the probe as it collected samples from the asteroid Ryugu and data from the analysis of the samples brought back to Earth. Collected at two locations on the surface of Ryugu, these samples clearly reveal all the diversity and different characteristics of the material that constitute this primitive asteroid. The results are published in the journal Science.

    A supermassive black hole revealed in a cosmic dust cloud
    An international team of researchers has unveiled the position of the supermassive black hole in the heart of the galaxy Messier 77 (M77). This work was possible due to the MATISSE instrument, built in France for the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) at the European Southern Observatory (ESO). The international team, led by the Leiden Observatory, the Lagrange laboratory (CNRS–UCA–OCA) and the Côte d'Azur Observatory, carried out a thermal mapping of the dust in the heart of M77, making it possible to find the supermassive black hole hidden there.
