‘AtlasCoelestisZeroG’ is a kinetic sculpture designed for microgravity environments. Thirteen concentric rings within a 287 mm diameter represent our Solar System. The sculpture was designed by Architecture and Vision and produced by G&A in aerospace-grade aluminium to be deployed in the International Space Station by the European astronaut Roberto Vittori during the STS-134 mission in spring 2011—the final mission of the Space Shuttle “Endeavour.” The sculpture, especially dedicated to this crew by Architecture and Vision, celebrates the spirit and culture of human exploration.
