Young boy I liked night walk with my grandpa. I asked him many, many questions about the sky, the stars, the universe ...

And one night, it's the moon landing, this July 21. All the family is around the radio (my parents haven't TV). I remember, I was afraid that lunar ground would be as unstable as quicksands!

Space is everywhere for me: in astronomy club during high school, in TV shows like Cosmos, in the subject of my thesis at the end of my studies, about the modification of the orofacial biology during weightlessness (I was then in connection with a physician of the Skylab mission, and a biologist of the Biocosmos mission).

Now, with internet, with The Planetary Society, Space is always everywhere, but a night walk under a starry sky always remains so wonderful.
