Earthwatch: the satellite revolution

From June 16, 2009, Earthwatch: the satellite revolution becomes Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie permanent exhibition. Come and immerse yourself in the heart of space application and discover space and Earth as you’ve never seen them before!

Back in 2009, the exhibition came at the right time since it was the world’s Astronomy year. Satellites and other space stations finally found their places in the heart of an exhibition rich in technical progresses.

So, you’ll discover Earth as never before and get a new look, a look from space towards our dear planet.

The exhibition evolves around two times with two various areas.

  • Monitoring the Earth: space, our planet’s assistant

This first part has some nice pictures of the Earth seen from satellites and shows how developed technological advances in terms of transmission of information are. Over 900 satellites orbit the Earth without us noticing it. They help us foresee disasters, understand the climate and even find our ways. This exhibition will allow everyone to interconnect our technologies with the ones we don’t see!

  • Journey into Space: accessing space by a succession of steps, small or giant

This last part will give you the possibility to, virtually speaking of course, live the joy of the docking of a European vehicle at the International Space Station. You’re also invited to think about the human presence in space, especially about the exploration of the Moon and Mars.

Earthwatch: the satellite revolution has been though up in partnership with EADS Astrium, sponsor, the Agence spatiale européenne [European Spage Agency] and the Centre national d’études spatiales [National Center for Space Studies].
