    Cosmic Radiation LM1812  
    This art piece is inspired by exoplanets and other planetary bodies that are constantly bombarded by the galactic cosmic radiation present trough space. Portraying radiation is not easy as elemental particles traveling at high speeds. But, in the early stages of particle accelerators and other nuclear experiments, amazing images were taken using cloud chambers to make the trail of thees highly energetic charge particles visible.  This is why I decided to combine our familiar images of space with the "invisible radiation"
