What is the story behind your artwork?
“My dear friend, Camilla Sdo, best friend of NASA’s Little Sdo solar orbiter, dreams of taking a space shuttle ride to the International Space Station to visit her dear friend. Little Sdo is very busy orgiting our Sun, transmitting data and images back to his co-workers at the Solar Dynamics Observatory. As busy as he is, Little Sdo still has time to yearn for the company of him dear friend, Camilla. My panel is a visual representation of Camilla’s dreams. She has been with Little from concept inception to Launch, a 9 year journey. We hope that our panel with trigger someone at NASA to have pity on our two friends and find a way to sneak Camilla on the last Shuttle flight.”
