An Interview with Maria Lanas and Nicole Stott of the Space for Art Foundation.

Postcards to Space. You’ve heard of postcards from faraway places, but have your heard of a postcard in space? Frank Roche’s guests for E38, Maria Lanas and Nicole Stott, have. Together, they have used the power of art and launched it into space.

Maria founded Projekt Posctard in Kastav, Croatia in 2014. More than 1500 children have had the opportunity to create art and share their postcard art stories.

And Nicole, who has experienced two spaceflights and 104 days living and working in space on both the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station (ISS), founded the Space for Art Foundation, and has partnered with Maria on the Postcards to Space initiative.

The Postcards to Space video has been shared with the crew of the ISS and will be premiered here on Earth on Nov 20, 2018 during the celebration of the UNICEF World Children’s Day events.

You heard the word Unity several times in the show. We live in a connected world.

    This is so amazing! Of course it’s cool that postcards can go to space, but the best thing about this is how these women followed through with their ideas and made a positive influence in the world. Love it!
