Pick of the jury

Taking up the title of a ten film series on the history of astronomical observatories from antiquity until today broadcasted by Arte in 1990 (Tours du monde, tours du ciel- Around the world, around the sky), this project deals with astronomy and observatories, but today, with a new story and a new treatment.

It is an exploration journey around the world, encountering astronomical observatories that are working today, in order to understand their observations and discoveries of the Universe. This journey around the world then combines with another one, a journey around the sky. This new Around the World, Around the Sky stands as an homage to astronomers for IYA2009.

Pierre Léna, astrophysician, from the Sciences Academia, and Michel Serres, historian of sciences and philosopher, from the French Academia, will participate in the film and will once more shed light on the narrative.

It is a journey around the world and around the sky.
