Space Shuttle Mission: STS - 134

Question: Question? I don’t even know how to ask the question. If everything in our human consciousness occupies physical space in time and has a beginning and an ending, how is it possible that the Universe has always been? If not, what was there before? If it’s expanding... expanding into what? These questions have haunted physicists, astronomers, philosophers, and spawned many a religion since the beginning of recorded history.

To me art is a personal exploration of the misunderstood. Space exploration, is a collective expansion of our understanding of the incomprehensible. This collective knowledge is built one upon the other much like the development of art. Thanks to the Shuttle Program and the Hubble Telescope we’ve taken yet another step toward understanding these riddles of the universe.

May there be many more events to come:


• liftoff

• weightlessness

• landing
