Want to Send Your Art to the International Space Station?!

For children ages 4-12, we’re hosting an art contest! Get the details:

We are working with Boeing and SpaceX to build human spaceflight systems, like rockets and spacecraft, to take astronauts to the International Space Station. These companies will fly astronauts to orbit around Earth while we focus on plans to explore deeper into our solar system

Get out your art supplies and use your creative imagination to show us the present and future of traveling in space!

There are no grocery stores in space, but there may soon be farms. Very small farms that are important to a crew conducting a mission to deep space. That’s because our astronauts will need to grow some of their own food. Researchers on Earth and astronauts on the International Space Station are already showing what is needed to grow robust plants in orbit.

What would you take to space? Astronaut Suni Williams took a cutout of her dog, Gorbie, on her first mission to the International Space Station. 

Kids 4 to 12, draw what you would take and enter it in our Children’s Artwork Calendar contest! Your entry could be beamed to the space station!

Go to for more information about the competition’s themes, rules and deadlines plus the entry form. 

Get your parent’s permission, of course!

Email your entry form and drawing to us at:

Make sure to follow us on Tumblr for your regular dose of space:

On Ryder...

Someone on reddit posted the link between the dog tag with Ryder on it, and the first american woman in space Sally Ride. 

And, of course, Shepard was named for Alan Shepard, the first american man in space. 

How perfect is that? How fucking beautiful is this shit?! 

I can’t being to express how important and special it is to have someone like Ride acknowledged and recognized. And Alan Shepard, and fuck, everyone who’s taken the risk to advance space exploration. But, women in space, minorities in space - fuck yes pay homage to them!  

Someone on that reddit post said they wanted to name their new character Valentina Ryder (after the first woman in space, Valentine Tereshkova). FUckING BRING IT. I’m so ON BOARD FOR THIS SHIT. 

Svetlana Savitskaya , first woman to perform space walk

Judith Resnik , first Jewish-American woman in space, died during the Challenger disaster 

Mae Jemison , first African-American woman in space

Ellen Ochoa , first Hispanic woman in space

Chiaki Mukai , first Japanese woman in space

Kalpana Chawla , first Indian-American woman in space

Someone fight me I can name my character after Sunita Williams, my favorite astronaut, and I know I could have done that before but this is SO DIFFERENT. 


I can’t believe the day that i have to post this shit is here, but here in bumfuck nowhere upstate NY, the border patrol was called on a family after they were stopped by geneseo police on a routine stop. they were just trying to get home from church and these poor people were sent to holding in rochester. They had no warrent and this was done due to racial profiling, and this is in no way just
