Meet the Atos team working with CNES to sendthe Rosetta spacecraft over 6.5bn km into spaceOver the last nine years the team has been working with the CNES to make theRosetta Space Mission a success. The team has been managing the missionsoperational procedures, keeping the IT and networks running, designing theschedule for the scientific operations of the landing craft, and monitoring theexecution of on-board scientific experiments.From left: Antoine Charpentier, Maryse Garroussia, Michel Delaire, Laurent Peret,Dominique Hallouard, Laurent Jean-Rigaud
