Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Voyager 2 Flyby of Neptune in 1989

A stunning crystal sculpture capturing the intricate detail of the Voyager spacecraft with its high-gain antenna dish, magnetometer boom, camera platform, nuclear generator boom, and radio astronomy antenna. Looming in the background is Neptune, with cloud features as imaged by Voyager 2. Neptune's delicate ring system all but disappears when viewed through the crystal edge-on.
This art was originally commissioned by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation for inclusion in the Explorers Stanchion of the Voyage model Solar System in Kansas City, Kansas. The Explorers Stanchion is located in front of Kansas City's historic Union Station.
