Celebrating Space Flight-

Digital sketch of the proposed Neil Armstrong sculpture for Russia.

Happy International Day of Human Space Flight- April 12

Some of you may know that I am all about space. I’m especially about space when it concerns this sculpture that has been under negotiation for a while. I have been asked to create a sculpture of Neil Armstrong to go to Russia.  It is on hold until all of the money is raised, but land awaits for the sculpture.

So when I hear that this is International Day of Human Space Flight- I get excited and hope that this sculpture project will one day come to fruition.

I’m happy to hear that the General UN Assembly, in its resolution of April 7, 2011 declared 12 April as the International Day of Human Space Flight
Today- April 10, 2015 there is an event
