Using new numerical simulations, scientists from the CEA, the CNRS and the University Paris-Diderot can explain why the Sun's magnetic field reverses every eleven years. To be published in the July 14, 2017 issue of Science, the discovery of a scaling law for determining the magnetic cycle period of a star is pioneering and helps us comprehend violent space weather phenomena.

Efficient non-intrusive inspection (NII) of containerised freight is critical for customs, as freight containers are potential means of smuggling, illegal immigration or even trafficking nuclear material and chemical warfare agents. A single NII technology cannot cope with all of these different threats. The C-BORD project’s objective is to address them all and enable customs to deploy comprehensive cost-effective solutions for the NII of containers in order to protect EU sea and land borders.
