Public Talks & Shows

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…

  1. Your book is the best I have ever read on quantum mechanics and the universe. I am 83 years old and have been reading books on these topics for many years. I am hampered by my lack of science
    and math in my college years. I studied English literature. It is interesting how one’s tastes change over the years.

    1. Dear Ann Young Persons,
      Many, many thanks for having taken the time to write to me! Your message is exactly the kind of reasons why I started writing in the first place. I sincerely hope the whole of science will fill your dreams and reflections for a very, very long time!
      With all my very best wishes,
      PS: Which country do you live in?
