My friend Neil (not Armstrong) sent me these fanciful prints of Animal Astronauts by the artist going by the name of Rubbishmonkey. I think personifying animals is something we can all appreciate. It’s great to imagine how each of these animals might act in space – which natural animal instincts would carry over.
The Gorilla – Stern and Powerful
The Deer – Smart and Quick
The Cosmonaut K9 – Loyal and Courageous
The Tiger – Cunning and Stealthy
I personally hope the future involves some sort of technology that gives animals human-level intelligence.
