Astronauts. They’ve endured grueling conditions. They’ve studied the cosmos. They’ve travelled to outerspace. And now, they’ve faced their biggest challenge* yet: picking winners for the Asteroid Day Challenge.
*Ok, space stuff is super hard. But it wasn’t easy because y’all made awesome art.
Here are the rest of the inspiring finalists
Check out the 1,200+ inspiring Asteroid Day designs here.
Astrophysicist and QUEEN guitarist Dr. Brian May founded Asteroid Day in 2014 to help raise awareness for all things asteroid. Prominent scientists across the globe (like Richard Dawkins and Bill Nye, whoa) signed on to support this mission. Every year, Asteroid Day excites people about space, educating them about why asteroids are super cool and how we can protect our planet when they occasionally hit.
And you can help too. How? By making awesome asteroid art for our Asteroid Day Challenge.
The winners will be chosen by elite astronauts including Chris Hadfield, Nicole Stott, Leland Melvin, and more, who will share the winning designs on their social channels. You’ll also get an astronaut-signed copy of your work to proudly display on your wall for the perusement of future dinner guests and nerdy dates.
