SCHMID & GUZIK have paintings in a FINE ART GALLERY FAR, FAR AWAY…
Their artworks are now orbiting Planet Earth every 93 minutes!
On December 6, 2015, the paintings by Richard Schmid & Nancy Guzik were successfully launched aboard an Atlas V Rocket. The experiments, along with the art, are now orbiting Earth every 93 minutes. This art/science wonder is expected to circle the earth 330 times at a speed of 17,500 mph, at an altitude of 221 miles, for a total distance traveled of 9 million miles. If the mission is extended, it could cover as many as 25 million miles!
Shown below, the itsy-bitsy paintings being placed in the young scientist's experiments.
