I had a dream, which was not all a dream

EXOBIOTANICA -BOTANICAL SPACE FLIGHT
Place: Black Rock Desert, Nevada, USA
Bonsai in Space
Flowers in Space
Plants on the earth rooted in the soil, under the command of gravity.
Roots, soil and gravity – by giving up the links to life, what kind of “beauty” shall be born?
Within the harsh “nature”, at an attitude of 30,000 meters and minus 50 degrees Celsius,
the plants evolve into EXBIOTA (extraterrestrial life).
A pine tree confronting the ridge line of the Earth.
A bouquet of flowers marching towards the sun hit by the intense wind.
Freed from everything, the plants shall head to the space.

This image obtained in 2002 from NASA shows one of the twin Voyager spacecraft, launched in 1977.
On Thursday, scientists declared that it had become the first probe to exit the solar system, a breathtaking achievement that NASA could only fantasize about back when Voyager was launched in 1977, the same year “Star Wars” was released.
“The holy grail of heliosphere research.”
