Liege, space city


Liege is a significant contributor to the European space program, through the activities of several public and private organizations, such as the Centre Spatial Liegois. Liege is also a member of the Community of Ariane Cities, a community of cities that assist in the activities of the European Space Agency. This giant inflatable astronaut is part of a drive by the European Space Agency to raise awareness of the work being carried out in such cities.

Moi, j'adore ce genre de nounours gonflable! On en voit plein à Pompidou. Tu es sur que ce n'est pas une intallation d'un artiste contemporain chinois?
