Huit cents chercheurs et industriels de 45 pays ont débattu cette semaine à Toulouse des applications industrielles proches ou plus lointaines du graphène, un nouveau matériau en carbone qui pourrait révolutionner la microélectronique.
Découverte en 1711 par Mathieu Martin de Chassiron et Michel Dubocage, commandant respectivement les frégates La Princesse et La Découverte, l’île de Clipperton (ou île de la Passion) est devenue une possession française depuis 1858.

MOSCOW, January 3 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Navy is expected to receive 40 new warships and auxiliary vessels in 2014, a high-ranking official said Friday.
In addition to surface ships of various classes, the navy will also commission the third Borey-class nuclear powered ballistic missile submarine, the Vladimir Monomakh, and a Varshavyanka-class diesel electric submarine, Rear Admiral Viktor Bursuk, a deputy commander of the Russian navy, said.
Bursuk, who oversees weapons procurement for the navy, said that Russia will continue the repair and overhaul of the Admiral Nakhimov nuclear-powered missile cruiser and three nuclear-powered attack submarines this year.
The Kirov-class cruiser, known as the Kalinin until 1992, was commissioned in 1989 and mothballed in 1999. It has since been docked for upgrades at the Sevmash shipyard in the northern Russian city of Severodvinsk, on the White Sea.
The Admiral Nakhimov is expected to rejoin the Russian navy in 2018 with the most advanced weapons systems for its vessel type, the Sevmash shipyard said in June last year.
Auxiliary ships to be commissioned by the end of 2014 include the Igor Belousov, an advanced search-and-rescue ship designed to boost the navy’s ability to rescue submarines and ships in distress, Bursuk said.
Denmark has signed a contract with Karstensens Skibsvaerft for a third Knud Rasmussen-class arctic patrol ship, it was announced on 18 December.
Worth DKK355 million (USD64.9 million), the contract will see the vessel completed in 2017. In Royal Danish Navy service the vessel will provide sovereignty enforcement, patrol, and fisheries duties in the waters around Greenland, the defence of which remains a Danish responsibility.
The Royal Danish Navy currently operates two Knud Rasmussen-class vessels, with the country's cross-party 'Agreement on Defence', announced in November 2012 and covering the period 2013-17, setting out plans to bring forward the retirement of the navy's last Agdlek-class oceangoing patrol cutter, HDMS Tulugaq , to 2014 and to replace it with a third Knud Rasmussen vessel. The total cost of completing the third ship is valued by the Danish Ministry of Defence at over DKK500 million.
The new vessel will be slightly different to its sister ships, providing improved support for marine environmental research missions. Innovations include a modular crane and boom system, a larger tender, hydrographic multi-beam survey sonar, and space for research stations. As with the other vessels of the class, it will be just less than 72 m long and will displace 1,720 tonnes. Armed with a 76 mm main gun, the ships can deploy ice-capable CB-90 high-speed combat craft from the stern, have a flight deck which can embark a helicopter in a lily pad manner, and have space on board to embark containers.
The vessel will be built at Karstensens Skibsvaerft's dry dock in Skagen.
