To Mars – Sculpture by Addé 2019

A few humans are expected to step a foot on Mars anytime soon.

Until then, it only took 66 years between the first successful powered flight of the Wright Flyer in 1903 and the moon landing.

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, landed on the moon, first and glorious step for humankind, on solid ground in space.

Already 50 years have past, but the 4th rock from the sun is about to be stepped on (wipe your feet).

The moon is at one second from earth at light speed.
Mars is at 258 seconds (4 minutes 30s.)

 
 

Vers Mars – Sculpture by Addé 2019

Bientôt quelques humains marcheront sur Mars.

Auparavant, il ne s’était écoulé que 66 ans entre le premier vol motorisé réussi du Wright Flyer en 1903 et l’alunissage.

Le 20 juillet 1969, Neil Armstrong et Buzz Aldrin, ont atterri la lune, premier et glorieux pas de l’humanité sur un sol dans l’espace.

Déjà 50 ans ont passé, mais la 4ème pierre depuis soleil est sur le point d’être abordée (essuyez vos pieds).

La lune est à une seconde de la terre à la vitesse de la lumière.
Mars est à 258 secondes (4 minutes 30 secondes.)

Cette sculpture est conçue pour célébrer le premier atterrissage sur Mars.
A l’origine d’une hauteur de plus d’un mètre, il devrait être agrandi pour devenir un monument.

This sculpture is conceived to celebrate the first Mars landing. Originally over one metre high, it should be enlarged to become a monument.

    Great sculpture, especially now that I know the story behind it!

      In 1969, still a teenager, while in Saint Tropez (working there as a musician) I watched the moon landing. Don’t know if I’ll still be there for the Mars landing but I thought it deserves a monument. Thank you so much, Christy!
