The world of rugby and the world of space, although superficially different, share common traits that are wonderfully displayed in the exhibition held at the Cité de l’Espace in Toulouse and at the Stade Ernest Wallon. There are large-scale photographs of Stade Toulousain players alongside great photographs of Thomas Pesquet.
Audi Liste, curator of the exhibition, highlights three central values: physical endurance, mental strength, and team spirit. It highlights, for example, the constant repetition of artistic gestures, whether it is an astronaut taking a spacewalk or a rugby player perfecting his passes. The idea of ​​repetition, preparation, and rigorous training are the cornerstones of success in both fields.

Team spirit is another notable point of convergence. Astronauts, like rugby players, are supported by a dedicated team that prepares them to overcome the challenges inherent in their profession. Mental and physical preparation, strategy and consistent support from the team are all critical to mission success, on Earth or in space.
