In the past few years, I have given more than 100 talks in front of more than 50,000 people, throughout Europe. Most of them were filmed, but none was put on youtube, because I want the public to discover the universe live rather than online prior to an event.
A few of my shows/talks are available to watch here, though:
In 2013, I wrote a live pyrotechnic and 3D mapping show with Les Petits Français. 60 000 people came to see it live in La Défense, near Paris, France.
It looked like this :
I have also given two TEDx Paris talks. The last one, in 2012, was about our position in the universe.
It is here (and it is in French again):
One of the most impressive videos in this talk is the 400 000 galaxies trip. It is a simulation of the real cosmos made by Miguel A. Aragon, Mark Subbarao and Alex Szalay, and based on the Sloan Digital Sky Survey database.
I’ve spent a lot of time doing outreach in schools and I very much intend to continue doing so, but time isn’t as stretchable as one may wish, so I unfortunately can’t do it as much as I used to…
