Hubble’s space picture mosaic by Alex Parker
In fact, for creating this beautiful mosaic inspired by the iconic painting “The Starry Night”, Alex Parker used most famous space portraits taken by the Hubble telescope over the last 20 years. Besides, he used computer to re-produce the artwork, and downloaded Hubble’s Top 100 Images, and began reconstructing Van Gogh’s masterpiece. By the way, Alex’s specialty is exploring the asteroids and proto-planets of our solar system. According to him, the idea came up around the time of Hubble’s 22nd birthday, when he thought it would be neat to assemble a collage of a bunch of Hubble images from over its history. Alex Harrison Parker has Bachelors Degree in Physics and Astronomy with Honors (University of Washington, 2007), Art and Science Degree with Honors.
