Creator Fact šŸ‘¤

Ansel Adams was an American landscape photographer and environmentalist. He also is one of very few people to have their art sent into outer space.

In 1977, NASA and Carl Sagan chose Adam's photograph The Tetons and the Snake River to be carried on the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecrafts.

It was chosen because they believed if it was ever found by extraterrestrial life, it would give a good depiction of what our planet was like.
