On a side note, you can see on the bottom right corner of this picture the French Imperial Eagle-shaped forest on the Grand Serre mountain (no record exists to assert whether or not the shape is man-made but it remains very likely considering that the mountain overlooks the prairie de la rencontre at Laffrey where Napoléon, heading for Paris after he escaped from Elba, said these famous words in front of the royalist troops sent to arrest him: "If any of you will shoot his Emperor, here I am.")

Why's this trend of putting spaceships into existing historical cityscapes in France?
It's so annoying! They're totally ruining the charme of the country and its largely untouched towns and landscapes.

Cause we're an actual country ? With actual people living here who are looking ahead to the future with excitement and are not merely dreaming of being the museum guardians of a postcard-looking country.
