The conquest of the North Pole through the air
April 27, 2008 to September 7, 2008
In the context of the International Polar Year 2007 – 2008, the hepta.aero association and the museum of science fiction, utopia and extraordinary journeys propose to follow the incredible, tragic and controversial expeditions that led to the conquest of the last terra incognita of the world: the North Pole.
For centuries, the polar regions has been the most distant, inaccessible and virgin places. Territory of utopia, door opened on ignored or lost worlds, the indefinite and fantasized extreme Arctic attracts everyone and every desires. Dreamers, thinkers, adventurers, explorers, navigators and scientists are trying, each with their own sensibility, to take this territory in imagination or in real.
