On Tintin's traces in Nyon

The Calculus affair was published by Hergé in 1956. One of the greatest comic strip cartoonists of the 20th century had chosen Switzerland, and in particular Nyon, to add spice to the plot of the disappearance of Professor Calculus. Moreover, this character is inspired by the scientist Auguste Piccard, grandfather of Bertrand Piccard, himself a Tintin lover !
