Wingman Blue
Flown aboard the International Space Station, in a collaborative mission with NASA

and the Russian Space Agency.

When Richard Garriott launched to the International Space Station in 2008, he carried with him this piece to display on the orbiting outpost. This piece of art made it’s terrestrial debut at a special reception with Buzz Aldrin at the Charles Bank Gallery in Manhattan’s Lower East Side to benefit the Challenger Center.

“The artwork is the intersection of science, technology, space travel, and the innate and
insatiable human desire to discover new things and explore new frontiers. It’s a tribute to what happens
when imagination and scientific study meet.”
- Buzz Aldrin

Original is in the collection of Richard Garriott
