Maori Art Conquers Space

An artist will create in zero gravity for the first time in 2009. New Zealand's Makoure Scott won a spot on the Virgin Galactic's first flight by submitting a portfolio of his Maori-influenced work (and by paying $200,000.) Scott's work messes around with geometric shapes, as in this sculpture, exhibited in 2006. [Spaceport News]
