Donald R. Pettit's Space Art

"....I wonder what someone like Matisse could do with this ephemeral medium?" wonders Pettit. "Eventually, all the colors blended together yielding a rather dull looking green. I think we've discovered the true color of the Universe!" he joked..."

For more of Petitt's videos I turned to NASA's great video collection unfortunate, you can't link to search results, but I like the term "experiment." There is a whole universe of geeky Nasa fun there.

Petitt's playful experiments with salt in inflated bags created the first models of "planet formation." (you can learn a lot watching TV!) These videos are incredible!
