Photographer Captures the Milky Way Mirrored on Earth at the World’s Largest Salt Flat #ArtTuesday

Stunning work from Russian photographer David Kordan up on My Modern Met.

Kordan planned a month-long road trip to observe the stars and shoot astrophotography, which was easier said than done. The high elevation (4,000 to 5,000 meters above sea level) meant that he needed at least five days to acclimate to the change. Kordan then spent the following two weeks in the Altiplano of Bolivia, but he still faced challenges. “Of course, it’s hard to move and hard to breath,” he explains. “But due to proper planning, we were safe and healthy.”

The adjustment period was worth it for the awe-inspiring sights, which Kordan describes as “space on Earth.” At night, he couldn’t see anything—he could just feel the car trudging through water and salt. He recalls: “It seemed that we floated in open space. Our spaceship is parked in a distance, and stars are blinking with blue, red and yellow colors. You stand in the deep night with stars above you, aside from you and underneath!”

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
