CUPOLA - a window to the world
On Feb. 8, 2010
Endeavour shuttle mission STS 130 delivered a third connecting module to the ISS (international space station) the Tranquility node and its Cupola, a dome-shaped extension from Tranquility made up of seven windows. The Cupola is a magnificent window to the world.
This art work is a tribute to the mission and my passion for science and space.
The tree of life connects by its intertwined roots, the Cupola's six windows
and the ketubah itself - The rounded seventh window.
The unity tree - Adam and Eve
The tree of life - 'CHAIM'
Bliss, Children, Joy
Made by the Italian Space Agency, the 'Cupola' is a room with a view, to be used as a control room for robotics. a mini control tower sticking out from the Tranquility node, as opposed to the other station windows, which are flush with the station’s exterior.
Its seven windows – one in the center and six around the sides – will provide the only views of the outside of the station from the inside, in particular the Russian and Japanese sections. And with the station just about finished, there’s more to see out there than ever.
