Closer to the Stars

In Hawaii, on the top of Mauna Kea, in Chile, in the Atacama desert, and in the Canary Islands, we will meet this “people of the stars”, discovering what makes the astronomers’ hearts beat today.


How does Astronomy analyze our past and build our future? What about the origins of the Universe and its cartography? Where are we in the discovery of extraterrestrial life? 


Astounding, original, mysterious, but also really esthetic... Those places of observation possess a unique atmosphere. One made of philosophy and science-fiction.
