curious exploration of the argonaut


The Cité des sciences et de l’industrie closed its doors to visitors for a year. It is the first time that the place has been deserted for such a long period…

The man, back, discovers that nature has regained its rights. A pipe in the old submarine had deteriorated and water had infiltrated the interior of the Argonaut. Curious plants have taken up residence. These new creatures have curious physical and chemical properties, because they have developed in a dark and cold climate.

A geodesic greenhouse has been installed by scientists near the Argonaut to study its plants in a different sunny climate. Another greenhouse displays some of the plants for the curious eyes of visitors.

A filmed visit of the exhibition made the public discover this place full of glowing and magical creatures.
