Bits of Henry Ingram’s 1815 poem “The Flower of Wye” borrowed to create a poem about the International Space Station. The initial cap “H” is part of an ISS image (photo credit: Peter Stetson and John Stetson). The background text is a 2004 Congressional Budget Office budgetary analysis of NASA’s future space vision.
This April 4, 1968 picture of the unmanned Apollo 6 mission launch was taken from a chase plane. (Image credit: NASA.) The poem text comes from a 1909 poem in “The Public” called “Wanderlust.” Phrases from other collocated articles were added in.
A page of Galileo’s “Dialogues Concerning Two New Sciences” redacted into a poem. (I used Henry Crew and Alfonso de Salvio’s 1914 translation for this effort.) The frame is a star field in Cepheus captured by the Dawn mission. Image credit: NASA/JPL /MPS/DLR/IDA
