Origin Road (France)

The “Origin Road” exhibition takes you on a journey through the Pyrenees landscape on a quest for the past: from the Big Bang to the appearance of Humanity. The exhibition focuses on four exploration areas. Each invites you to immerse yourself in the past: the birth of the universe, the Earth and its landscapes, life and our ancestors. You’ll stop over at several scientific sites in the Pyrenean area where you’ll share the work of astronomers, geologists, palaeontologists and archaeologist who observe, excavate, and decode the sky, rocks and fossils for clues likely to solve the grand puzzle of our origins. The exhibition will firstly be presented at the Cité de l’espace in Toulouse from 22 October to 5 November and at the Universe Observation Centre in Àger (province of Noguera) from November 2011 to May 2012.
