Artists Jon Gibson and Amanda White are literally taking pop art out of this world. The duo etched a whimsical design on the side of the first satellite to double as a work of art. In addition to monitoring the atmosphere and taking photos, Gibson and White hope the satellite will send a positive message to other life forms potentially out there. Mainly, not to invade our planet.
The planned launch will be Oct. 29 from Kazakhstan.
