Some things are just too incredible not to share.

Earlier this month, Japanese artist Azuma Makoto launched (literally) a project where he sent flowers into space from Black Rock Desert outside of Gerlach, Nevada.

“The best thing about this project is that space is so foreign to most of us, so seeing a familiar object like a bouquet of flowers flying above Earth domesticates space, and the idea of traveling into it.”

The exhibit, Exobiotanica, speaks for itself.
