Abstract: The “From Earth to the Universe” (FETTU) program is an international effort to bring astronomical images to the public in non-traditional (and free) locations. Almost 70 countries have or are hosting FETTU in nearly 300 separate exhibitions thus far in IYA2009. And more are developing as the year continues. FETTU is one of the IAU’s global cornerstone projects and a major project of the U.S. IYA2009 efforts. We will describe the success stories of FETTU, as well as some of the challenges in bringing this project to fruition. We will also discuss how FETTU and the products associated with it may be used around the world in 2010 and beyond.
