Michelle Shares her Artwork for the Edge of Space

Hello everyone! I know I promised you that I would share my artwork that I will submit to be flown to the Edge of Space and while it took me longer than planned, I finally have created this… But first, for those of you who don’t know what I am talking about, let me share this cool opportunity with you!

Higher Orbits is collaborating with Space Perspective to give every human on the planet the opportunity to have their artwork flown to the Edge of Space aboard the test flight of Neptune One! This trailblazing flight will lead the way to humans eventually flying with Space Perspective to the Edge of Space.

There is a specific them to this and some parameters to the size etc, but it is open to every single human on the planet no matter their age.

All artwork that is submitted (that meets the requirements) will be flown electronically and all these artists will receive a special electronic certificate after the flight. A handful of artworks will be selected to be physically flown. There are different age categories for this so everyone can be part of this flight!

BUT the deadline is approaching quickly! All artwork must be in by April 1 at 11pm. (And they aren’t fooling about this! Ha!)

So, as I have mentioned before, I am definitely not an artist… I joke my stick people look funny. So, while some of you may look at my creation and not be impressed (and that’s ok!) this is my art I created. As humans have sought to go higher and farther… it’s started with a dream… and for that dream to become reality we must dare… and then we must GO! Dreaming and daring to follow those dreams changes are perspective of the world for us. I challenge all of you to Dream, Dare, and GO! Follow your dreams – whatever they may be! Find a new perspective of the universe when you dare to think bigger than you originally thought you could. This is what my art conveys for me.

If I can create artwork – SO. CAN. YOU! Just do it! Don’t miss out on this really neat opportunity to be part of an inaugural flight of Space Perspective’s Neptune One.

I am excited to have this artwork flown electronically on the Neptune One test flight to the Edge of Space. And I dream that one day I will dare to go to the Edge of Space…
