Toulouse’s planeterrella

The Toulouse copy of Planeterrella was built for the International Year of Astronomy 2009, and more specifically in the framework of the general public exhibition ’Magnetic Nature: from Atoms to Stars’ designed and built at Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées: http://expomag.ast.obs-mip.fr

It has been used very regularly in public nights, like for instance ’the 2009 researchers’ night’ at ’La cité de l’Espace in Toulouse, or for school presentations, like for instance during ’Novela 2009’ in Toulouse.

The researcher in charge of the Planeterrella is Frédéric Pitout.
