The Space Observatory

  • CNES’s cultural outreach unit since 2000
  • A cultural policy shaped through three major programmes:
    • “Inventories and cultural heritage of Space”
    • “Creativity and imagination for Space”
    • “Knowledge and cultural history of Space”
  • Partnerships with scientific and cultural establishments in France and Europe

A dual ambition

  • Promoting knowledge of Space activities and applications.
  • Using Space as a basis for education and learning: experimental methods, project development, teamwork etc.

Three kinds of actions

  • Raising awareness and providing information : tools that can be widely used to disseminate Space culture.
  • Hands-on learning : practical ways of carrying out projects or exploring a field of science.
  • Training : training sessions for teachers and activity leaders.

Key annual figures

  • 100,000 young people participate
  • 1 000 teachers trained
