To celebrate the 80 years of the CNRS, the Institut d'astrophysique de Paris organizes a sleepless night of astronomy, from Saturday 8th to Sunday 9th of June, 2019. On the program: observations (in partnership with the “French Astronomy Association”, the “Société Astronomique de France” and “The little pickers of stars”), a marathon of small conferences (30 minutes), from 8 pm to 8 am, with the theme: “Where will astrophysics be when the CNRS turns 100?”.

These conferences will be broadcast live on the YouTube Channel “Le Sense of Wonder”, and hosted by Sébastien Carassou, Étienne Ledolley, Alice Thomas and Sophie Félix. They will be illustrated by the cartoonists from the Café des sciences. A quiz will be organized by doctoral students, and an exhibition will present in more detail the different research activities at the IAP, but also those of the International Astronomical Union.
