Géopolis, the European space Agency (ESA) and the Federal Science Policy Office are pleased to present an exhibition dedicated to the Earth as seen from space: The planet through the eyes of Thomas Pesquet and imagined by satellites.

A selection of exceptional photos taken by Thomas Pesquet from the Cupola, the observatory module of the International Space Station is presented at Géopolis and at the Parc Egmont. These photos illustrate the beauty but also the fragility of the planet.

The exhibition also contains a selection of satellite images that document and imagine some of the planet's major ecological disasters caused by mankind. These satellite images are displayed at Géopolis and The Elevator.

These images are an invitation to act for the preservation of our planet.
