DAY 333 – Yermits vs Robots; Space, the final frontier

YERMITS VS. ROBOTS: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.

This is week eight! The Theme: NASA SPACE CHALLENGE.

We were inspired by the Etsy/NASA Space Contest (which sadly isn’t open to Canadians. Booo, waaah, grouse, etc).

It’s probably not typical, but when I think of the history of space exploration, I think of the animals that were actually the first astronauts. And since this was specifically NASA-themed, I couldn’t do my favourite, Laika. So I thought I would do the first monkey, Albert. Like many of the animals that paved the way for human spaceflight, Albert died in flight. So when I think of the awesomeness of space, and the amazing advances NASA makes in science, I also think about the animals that were the first Earth eyes to see outside of out atmosphere.

And then I think about how terrified the animals must have been, and I feel bad. Animals are pretty much always taking one for the team when it comes to humans. We are going to be SO SCREWED when they evolve opposable thumbs and giant brains.

And, because this is Robot a Day and we thrive on factual accuracies in our robots* here is Albert in his space helmet:

*bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Here is Jenny Yermit’s totally win-tastic entry:

Wow. Just…. wow. Seriously, wow. Amazing. Jenny really captured all the details here, the orange suit, the pose with helmet… the flag in the background. So perfect.

NEXT WEEK’S THEME: TBA

    Your animals *would* be a perfect entry, yes, animals were the first space travels from earth (as far as we know, you know?!) But poor Albert looks so unhappy in the helmet…. :(
