Exhibition of images from the book “Le très grand livre de l’espace” (The big book Larousse of Space) – a great book to discover all the wonders of the universe, with six major thematic sections divided into sub-themes (satellites, galaxies, Ariane 5…), and ending with a large, beautiful double-page. The book also contains a great diversity of information, which is serious, anecdotal, unusual, humorous… but always extraordinary, helping children to approach the mysteries of space from different angles.
