Résumé

From 2000 to 2006, Jean Duprat, a physicist at the CSNSM, went three times to the scientific base Concordia at the South Pole to collect micrometeorites, in order to understand, thanks to these witnesses of the first moments of the primitive solar system, how the Sun and its planets were formed 4.5 billion years ago.
