We leave for a trip around the world in real time.
Of the seven billion human beings who inhabit our land, only six were lucky enough to see the world from space. It is the team of astronauts on the International Space Station. In precisely 90 minutes, they have the privilege to make a full rotation in orbit around the earth.
It is a unique opportunity to take the pulse of our planet, to witness the beauty and the diversity of life on earth, but also the impact of man. We discover the key-numbers in the evolution of our earth in 90 minutes: from the movement of continents to the withdrawal of the Amazon rainforest, from melting ice to rainfall, from changes in prices of raw materials to the weight of waste engendered by consumer society, from the number of deaths to that of changing lives.
