Phase One, Pre-Flight:
The goal here is to spend 2021-2023 gathering sponsors, running a media/press gamut, and building a long-term plan with my fellow artists to see what we can accomplish together. Climate change is the most logical and necessary mission in my opinion, but I'd love to see what the seven other artists have to say.My intention here is to build up our team of eight spacebound artists as the backbone of a positive coalition dedicated to the betterment of mankind and the preservation of our world.
And of course, lots of self care. I adopted a strict and healthy diet since I first heard about dearMoon, have been exercising regularly, and am following the health regiment that Astronaut Scott Kelly delineated in his Startalk podcast appearance ("The Right Stuff with astronaut Scott Kelly and Dr. Chris Mason").
Reached out to Canon regarding camera functionality in zero-gravity environments. Currently awaiting a response.Update 4/8:
As a prospective astronaut I have scheduled three press releases, had a Dallas-based video production feature me in a documentary about my region, have an artist from the Museo de las Bellas Artes in Mexico City painting me for his exhibit on the 17th of April, and am almost done with a promo photo session where I debut the custom dearMoon flightsuit I created.Update 4/13:
