1. Trailer of FETTU Around the World
Quicktime MPEG
Chandra images were shown as part of the "From Earth to the Universe" project during the International Year of Astronomy 2009. In addition to the exhibits in the US, FETTU was also a worldwide project during IYA 2009. Using the materials curated by FETTU project, volunteers and organizers around the world created their own versions of the exhibits in various languages, formats, and venues. By the end of 2009, there were over 500 separate FETTU exhibits in nearly 70 different countries on every continent except Antarctica.
