A night celebrating Space exploration

Shackleton the sculpture by ho1, realised after the Japanese Aerospace Agency scanning of the moon will be part of Padova Space week, an event dedicated to the adventurous spirit of space explorations.

Shackleton is named as the crater located at the south pole of the moon, and it faithfully reproduces lunar morphology using 3D satellite surveys carried out on the planet’s terrain, simultaneously becoming in its final form a seat and an atlas with which one can retrace every single sea or crater. The sculpture is made of aluminium and produced with the patented T-sculpt technology, which allows for the heating or cooling of the object in a range of 5-45°C
