"And if the sky was falling upon us?" about the project Nos
(project supported by La Diagonale Paris-Saclay)
Those beautiful shooting stars that we love trying to spot
during August night sky are meteorites, burning when
entering our atmosphere. But, they might also be some parts
of a satellite falling back on Earth .... This August, it
has also been night during the day in São Paulo ...
Human pollution has reached the Earth orbit, climate change
is underway, and studies for other celestial bodies
geo-engineering has started.
Under the title Nos météores the artists Marie-Julie
Bourgeois and Barthélemy Antoine-Lœff are proposing several
projects in collaboration with scientists among which what
they call "atmospheric fictions" based on the real climat of
other planets, including Mars with the astrophysicist Cédric
Pilorget, in an attempt to poetically repair our climat.

Biological Station, directs the M3 Multicellular Marine
Models laboratory) //
"Life at the edge" about the project Roscosmoe
It is almost a whole zoo that has been launched into outer
The Roscosmoe project, at the intersection of marine
biology, design anthropology of science and art, intends to
take on board Symsagittifera roscoffensis. This marine worm
from the Breton coastline, a "plant-animal" 3 to 4 mm long,
actually lives in symbiosis with a micro algae which it
shelters under its epidermis and which supplies the
essential of its nutritive needs via its photosynthethis.
The biology of S. roscoffensis makes this marine species a
potential model for the development of bio-regenerative
life-support systems applied to space research: oxygen
production, recycling of CO2 and waste nitrogen metabolism
from the animal by hosted micro-algae, regenerative
capacities of tissues energy autonomy ("embedded
Should we be dreaming of an algae-worm as a companion to
watch the sunset at the Earth-Space edge?
