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.
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
