    THEMATIC SESSION - Space is my future !

    Monday 16th October from 14h30 to 17h30

    The slogan of this 2017 Congress was imagined by a schoolgirl from Toulouse following a call for projects; and then later selected by the French astronauts of the organization committee. 
     
    The thematic session will be introduced by Bertrand Piccard, a great visionary explorer, doctor, initiator and creator of the first fuel-free solar airplane: Solar impulse - in which he flew around the world in 2016.
     
    Bertrand Piccard managed to combine his passions for exploration and aeronautical challenges with innovation as a means to protect environment and humanity’s future.
    Two chapters will illustrate this concept orientated towards space and earth: “Explorers of the new worlds” and “Sentinels of our planet”.
     
    These two sides of the main theme will insist on the utility of space activities, whether to explore our Solar system and bring knowledge and dreams or to raise awareness on how to better deal with our planet and make our everyday life easier thanks to satellites applications. Astronauts embody these activities mingling human or robotic explorations of planets, space telescopes, observation satellites of the Earth… From the International Space Station (ISS), they witness the limited nature of our world and how extraordinary fragile our common spaceship is. Once back from space, they participate in rousing interests and contribute in a better future for all.
     
    Along with Bertand Piccard, Lionel Suchet, Director of Innovation, Applications and Science at the CNES will facilitate the discussion and interrogate the participants in order to consider their place and that of space in each of our present, individual or collective destinies.
     
    Participants in the event:
               Sylvestre Maurice, astrophysicist from OMP-IRAP and specialist in Mars and the Solar system.

               Thomas Pesquet, ESA astronaut coming right back from the Proxima space mission.

               François Forget, astrophysicist and specialist in Earth and exoplanets environment patterns.

               Gilles Boeuf, member of the Collège de France, biologist and specialist in biodiversity.

               Pascal Lecomte, director of the ESA Climate Office.
