Summary

For the World Year of Astronomy (AMA09), CNRS and CNES produce a collection of video podcasts.

Our galaxy is swarming with clouds in which new stars appear, well sheltered in their cosy gas cocoons. The IRAM observatory has specialized in observing these movingly nascent stars.
This film is an interview with Pierre Cox (CNRS), astronomer and director of the Institut de Radioastronomie Millimétrique (institute for millimetric radioastronomy, IRAM - CNRS) in St Martin d'Hères.
