NASA, Luster Team Up on 3D Mosaic Sculpture to Display Space Fans’ Photos

Images shared with #NASAExhibit will be used on Artemis Generation

NASA teamed up with high-tech experiential solutions provider Luster on a custom-built 3D mosaic sculpture that will be displayed at the 70th International Astronautical Congress (IAC), being held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., today through Friday.

The sculpture, Artemis Generation, represents NASA’s Artemis lunar-exploration program, which is aiming to send the first woman and next man to the moon by 2024.

NASA said Artemis—Apollo’s twin sister in Greek mythology—is the first step of its long-term plan to establish a sustainable human presence on the moon with the goal of sending humans to Mars.

Lindsay Aitchison, a space suit engineer for NASA working on Artemis, said the new Space Launch System rocket would launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and send astronauts aboard the Orion spacecraft a distance of 250,000 miles, from Earth to the Gateway space station in lunar orbit.
