16 Sunrises

Flying into space. It is this dream that Thomas Pesquet realized when he took off from the Baikonur base.

450 kilometres from Earth, during these six months, when the world seems to be fading into the unknown, a dialogue between the astronaut and the visionary work of Saint Exupéry, which he took with him on the space station, takes place.
