This September, NASA will launch a mission to collect the first ever sample from an asteroid and plan to do so while sending (your?) art into space!
The mission named, "We the Explorers" welcomes all creative forms of expression; poetry, fine art, music, etc.
"Space exploration is an inherently creative activity," Dante Lauretta, principal investigator for OSIRIS-REx at the University of Arizona, said in a statement about the campaign launch. "We are inviting the world to join us on this great adventure by placing their art work on the OSIRIS-Rex spacecraft, where it will stay in space for millennia."
To submit your work, use the hashtag #WeTheExplorers and tag @OsirisREx on Twitter or @osiris_REX on Instagram. NASA will accept submissions until March 20th, at 11:59pm PT.
