Out of this World! Jewelry in the Space Age, an exhibition opening this weekend at the Forbes Galleries, is showing off jewelry, precious and otherwise, that's inspired by space, crafted from meteorites, and more.
Here's the idea, from guest curator Elyse Zorn Karlin:
This solid-gold replica was made by Parisian jeweler Cartier, and three editions will be shown off at the exhibition--one for each of the spacecraft's astronauts (Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins). Sounds like an Oscar for space explorers.
The incredible innovations, like drone swarms and perpetual flight, bringing aviation into the world of tomorrow. Plus: today's greatest sci-fi writers predict the future, the science behind the summer's biggest blockbusters, a Doctor Who-themed DIY 'bot, the organs you can do without, and much more.
