'A dwarf planet, that's what Pluto is', quipped my 6yo. OMG so the mnemonic 'My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us Nine Planets is no longer valid!'

At the elementary particle level, we humans, animals, plants, the earth, planets, stars and galaxies are all made of almost the same material.

We exist in the universe, but at the same time, there is a universe inside us! This is drawn with acrylic gouache, watercolor and colored pens.
Each person will have an especially designed space suit, to which a pet carrier can be attached, if desired.

I imagine Katherine writing her calculations on the blackboard and at the same time drawing a path on the night sky that would guide the astronauts and bring them safely back to earth.
