Résumé

A portrait of Roland Bacon, astrophysicist at the Lyon Astrophysical Research Centre (CRAL).
It is in the Atacama desert, in Chile, at the foot of the European Observatory of Cerro Paranal that Bacon shares with us his personal vision of scientific research between pure science and poetry.
He looks back at his career path, professional encounters and questions that led to the development of new projects. The MUSE (Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer) instrument is an example and was chosen to equip one of the VLTs (Very Large Telescope) and to enable scientists to better understand the formation of distant galaxies.
