French SSERVI Team Capabilities and Research Interests:

Principal Investigator Patrick Pinet (Astrophysics and Planetology Research Institute — IRAP) has assembled a French team to help NASA with scientific and technological expertise in the study of the Moon and Mercury, Vesta and Ceres asteroids in the Dawn mission, and comets like Churuymov-Gerasimenko (67P) of the ongoing Rosetta mission.

Dr. Patrick Pinet is a senior scientist at the French National Research Center (CNRS) and deputy-director of the IRAP laboratory. Belonging to the Midi-Pyrénées Observatory, the laboratory benefits from the support of the CNRS’ National Institute for Study of the Universe, the Paul Sabatier Toulouse III University, and the French Space Agency (CNES). The lab works closely with the Toulouse-based part of CNES, the European Space Agency, the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency, the Indian Space Research Organization, and now NASA SSERVI.
