In this first episode of our second season, we speak with three artists and scientists who reach out beyond the atmosphere of our planet in distress: astrophotographer Gerhard Huedepohl, historian of photography Katerina Korola, and astrophysicist Erika Grundstrom. Dedicated to the idea of marvelous transparency and luminosity, they remind us to be better stewards of our air and atmosphere on Earth.

Gerhard Huedepohl: The Milky Way arching from the VLT telescopes to VISTA, with the 4 Laser Guide Star, the Magellanic clouds, Zodiacal light and green airglow
