Later this year NASA is planning to send a spacecraft to explore the bennu asteroid. But what you maybe don’t know is that the exploration agency is planning to send artwork that you submit with it on a chip. Thats right if you are a lover of space exploration and you want to send your artwork on this one in a lifetime opportunity you just have to submit it by Sunday, March 20, 2016 at 11:59 pm PDT or when capacity of the drive that will carry submissions to space is reached
But as you might know… you won’t be the only one who wants to send something on this journey. So you should submit you artwork or as provided by NASA, “A submission may take the form of a sketch, photograph, graphic, poem, song, short video or other creative or artistic expression that reflects what it means to be an explorer,” as soon as possible, since already around 442,000 names have been submitted in a previous campaign called “message to bennu”.
You can submit through Twitter and Instagram. Check out the complete guidelines on NASA’s #WeTheExplorers site.
If you are planning to submit… Just mention the hashtag #WeTheExplorers when you post your artwork to Twitter (mention @OSIRISREx) or Instagram (@OSIRIS_REX). Submissions will be accepted until Sunday, March 20, 2016 at 11:59 pm PDT or until the hard drive fills up.
