  1981, Shuttlecraft, Oil on canvas, 49cm*53cm  

On April 12,1981 Colombia, the first Shuttlecraft, went into space and opened a new epoch to worldwide space travel.
The above picture serves as an eye witness to depict the significance of this great event. On November 3, 1957 a
dog, Laika, was the first living creature which was flown into space. Naturally, it needed to be included in the representation
of something so historically significant.
