The theme selected for week fifty three of Operation Graphite will be: Danger in Space!

mst3k-joelThe vacuum of space is a dangerous place. There is nothing quite like being frozen on one side, and burning on the other side; whilst the absence of atmospheric pressure collapses your lungs no matter how tight you try and hold your breath. I was pretty disappointed when I learned that a human body would not violently explode when it suddenly meets the vacuum of space. Not only can danger arise from simple mechanical errors and micro meteorites, something that real life astronauts face while in orbit;  there are pesky aliens, rogue scientists, asteroids, and China shooting down satellites. Even our own Sun will eventually become a danger as it swallows up the inner planets as it hits retirement age. It would sound much cooler, and perhaps even more accurate, if we stop referring to it as Space, and start calling it, “The Danger Zone.”

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Danger in Space!

All art work is due on Thursday 2.21.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday 2.22.13

Cue Kenny Loggins music.
