Paris, 18 October. CNES announces the opening of its first online merchandise store for space enthusiasts.

“CNES’s online store seeks to share our passion for space and give all enthusiasts like us the chance to show their pride in France’s space agency,” said Director of Communication Marie-Claude Salomé. “CNES is a world-class centre of scientific and engineering excellence through which France is a leader in space. So, we thought it was important to give the public at large the opportunity to share our enthusiasm and be ambassadors for the French space programme.”

Ma Boutique CNES offers a range of quality French-made clothing, originally decorated mugs, retro-styled posters and travel and office accessories for all the family and all occasions—another way to promote CNES through day-to-day objects marking and retracing the history and activities of the French space agency. Online shoppers will notably be able to order the new ‘A la Conquête du Cosmos’ (Reaching for the Cosmos) box set from the store to relive the milestone moments of France’s space adventure, from the first rocket launches in Algeria to Thomas Pesquet’s Alpha mission on the International Space Station. This box set contains a superb 92-page coffee-table book illustrated with rare archive materials and photos.
