“It Smurfs at the Observatory!”: an exhibition at the Planetarium of Brussels
Paul Melchior (1925-2004), former director of the Royal Observatory of Belgium, was cartoonist Peyo’s friend. Together they chose to illustrate the current research in Earth sciences at the Observatory with the Smurfs.
Hence, no less than 18 greeting cards featuring the joyful little blue men are published from 1966, all of them being inspired by the research and instruments of the Observatory. The Planetarium of Brussels presents you all of these cards along with some of the real illustrated objects.
