About Cédric Foellmi

I am a doctor in astrophysics, former support astronomer in a major observatory in Chile, Ph.D. observer of the Magellanic Clouds, and developer of tools and apps for astronomical observers since more than 10 years. What drives me is the fusion of knowledge and awe you feel when looking up to the stars in these magic places called "observatories".

I am dedicated at filling the gap between researcher-level tools and general-public apps. This is both for researchers to make their tools more accessible, and "amateurs" to access professional-quality tools. I love citizen science, and for that one must help those worlds to communicate. This will also help teachers and their classrooms all over the world to play with free and open material.

Thanks a lot for your support!

🌃 Made with love from the Alps.
Goals
$9 of $500 per month
If I reach $500 per month or more, I’ll start taking dedicated breaks out of my regular day job to focus on these tools. There are so much to do: industrialisation, completeness, tools for teachers and classrooms, translations etc!
