“Thus Shall You Go to the Stars”

Dr. Sally Ride passed away recently.  She was the first American woman in space, and she was an inspiration to a lot of people.  In response to her death, my friend Casey Conan — to whom Sally Ride was particularly inspirational — made the art above.

I think it is pretty fantastic, so this is what I want I am going to do.

I am making it available as a desktop wallpaper, for free, here:

1600 x 1200

1680 x 1050

I am also going to sell poster prints of it, and t-shirts with the image on it.  ALL proceeds from these sales will go to the Sally Ride Pancreatic Cancer Initiative, through Sally Ride Science (an organization that I suggest you familiarize yourself with — it is dedicated to instilling a love of science in technology in young people, but particularly in girls), and managed by the UCSD Moore’s Cancer Center.  Because fuck cancer, you know?

Apparently, we now have a store on Zazzle, where you can get several of these things.

This is the poster print.

This is the men’s t-shirt.

This is the women’s t-shirt.

    It seemed wrong that no one had commented here yet to agree that that’s one damn awesome image. So I’m doing so now:

    That right there is one DAMN AWESOME image.

    Well done, Casey.

    Hi there,

    I would like to speak with Casey about using her artwork for an official NASA memorial video tribute. Would you please pass along my contact information?

    Best regards.
