With André Grandchamps, astronomer and curator of the meteorite collection at the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan and Gaétan Cormier, meteorite dealer and amateur astronomer from the Maison de l’Astronomie

Visit some places normally off limits to the public, including the laboratory and the collection, and become a curator for a few minutes as you polish a meteorite fragment. In French only.
