The stars have held a particular fascination for us Earthlings since Time began..we have believed we are at the centre of the Universe for a long, long time. How did we discover that we were living on a tiny planet orbiting a simple star, lost amongst billions of other stars and galaxies? It’s no wonder if we suddenly feel overcome by vertigo…happily, the Nice astronomer Jean-Louis Heudier is there to guide us. He takes us on an historical journey, through the tumultuous narrative of our scientific study of the sky from Antiquity to the present day. We come across La Fontaine and Louis XIV, relive the trial of Galileo, meet Cassini and Einstein. We go on a journey into the far reaches of space, enthralled by images beamed in from huge telescopes and satellites.
With all the teaching skills and imagination of a great scientist, the actor looks to the vast cosmos to bring perspective to our planet and Mankind.
This proves Man’s fascination with the firmament, since the dawn of Time. Jean-Pierre Tissier, La Provence
