Satellite Art
Officials in Glasgow, Scotland, pose in this recent photo with a satellite that will carry artwork created by Los Angeles artists Jon Gibson and Amanda White, not shown, in British company Clyde Space facility in Glasgow. Posing from left are Craig Clark of Clyde Space, Serkey Krutikov, consul general of the Russian Federation in Edinburgh, Lena Wilson, Scottish Enterprise chief executive, and Scotland’s First Minster Alex Salmond. The artists believe their work, not visible in this photo, will be the first work of art launched into space, etched into the side of a satellite that Clyde Space is scheduled to send into orbit on Oct. 29 aboard a Soyuz rocket to be launched from Kazakhstan.
