Lunar rovers digging for ice at the lunar pole. These rovers designed by the CMU Field Robotics Center for the Transformational Space Corporations NASA study illustrate the deployment, and operation of a system to collect, process and store volatiles from shadowed craters for extraction of water for fuel and life support supplies.

Mark Maxwells work has been seen around the globe, and occasionally off it. From multiple exhibitions at the Smithsonians Air and Space Museum to the first art exhibit in earth orbit aboard Space Station MIR, Maxwells work for NASA and numerous other space agencies and private space companies have kept him busy along with his work in SF and game publishing. As a member of both the LOIRP Team (Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project) and the ISEE-3 Reboot Project, Maxwell earned merit badges in Techno-Archeology and Space Piracy. When this self-taught artist is not pushing pigments or pixels around, he's often found experimenting with loud, low frequencies on a Fender Jazz bass. View all posts by Mark Maxwell
