    La Voie Lactée - Vue du desert d'Antacama - Serge Brunier



    Serge Brunier (born 1958 in Paris) is a French photographer, reporter, and writer who has specialized in popular depictions of astronomical subjects.

    Work and Target

    Brunier works together with the magazine Science et Vie and is a columnist of the radio station France Info. He has written a bigger number of illustrated works regarding astronomy.
    He campaigns for an exploration of the Solar System through unmanned spacecrafts, but fights against crewed spaceflight.

    In his illustrated book Solar System Voyage, he describes the situations on the planets, how a hypothetical voyager would experience them.
    Brunier has made a panoramic photograph of the Milky Way in the Atacama desert over two years, which has been shown at his first exposition in the Monte Carlo Casino, in 2006, and, with its one hundred million pixels, on 144 square meters in the Palais de la Découverte in Paris in 2007.
    The International Astronomical Union has named the asteroid 10943 after Brunier in recognition of his services in the advancement of science.

    The most amazing view of the galaxy I've seen was far out at sea onboard an aircraft carrier.

    when mr dork and i go camping, we spend many evenings gazing at the sky, watching for shooting stars and satellites. pretty sure we saw the space station one night
