Globe and Mail Project: #51, GENTLEMEN SCIENTISTS CONTINUE LUNAR MISSIONS

(click on image to view larger version)
Gentlemen scientists celebrated President
Obama's recent decision to end the lunar
space program, effectively putting Moon
missions back in the hands of the
do-it-yourselfer.
The first of these moon voyages, SPAM 1,
will launch from the Antrim Truckstop
parking lot shortly after Bingo on Saturday.
Comprised of a wringer washer, a CCM Targa
and a pot-belly stove, the spacecraft is
powered by BBQ starter fluid and charcoal
briquettes.

Today's collage is dedicated to Fred Morrison (the man in the space helmet), inventor of the Frisbee, who died this week at the age of 90.

Collage #51 of my Globe and Mail Project: deconstructing Canada's National Newspaper and putting it back together to try and make sense of the world. All images used in this collage were clipped from Saturday's Globe.

Really gave me a good laugh!

With your help I do believe we could make a lunar transport vehicle that would be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. As a gentleman artist you understand balance, scale, working with found objects, cutting and pasting, all skills needed for rocket manufacturing.
As a lady artist I could add a woman's touch.

Let's pencil in a time to discuss it.
