A special version of the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart was prepared for display at the International Year of Astronomy 2009 exhibition in November in Paris. The chart, shown in the photos below, was presented to the public in an exhibition dedicated to astrophysics and nucleo-synthesis in the stars - 2009 being the International Year of Astronomy. It was exactly 400 hundred years ago in 1609 that Galileo first pointed his telescope to the skies. 2009 was also the anniversary of the publication of Kepler’s "Astronomia Nova" in which he corrected Copernicus’s description of the solar system and the motion of the planets. To celebrate this event, ITU and CEA designed a special giant version of the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart. In contrast to previous versions, this new chart was in the form of a "carpet". This “floor chart” was designed to be especially durable to resist wear and tear due to exhibition crowds walking over it. The dimensions of the floor chart (approximately 1.3m x 8.0m), were such that the nuclide information could be read easily.
