Regardless of whether or not you were a fan of the space program, the fact the US no longer is funding the NASA program like it used to, and the fact that we recently found flowing water on Mars, the idea of space travel is a hot topic right now. With artists like Jeremy Geddes creating amazing astronaut paintings, those fans of space travel can now look to the art of Neil Dacosta. A photographer based out of Portland, OR, Neil worked on a series of photos entitled “Astronaut Suicides”. In 2010 Barack Obama stated that “I understand that some believe that we should return to the surface of the moon but I have to say this bluntly, we have been there before”, (source). So for all those with dreams of space travel, and those young at heart that wanted nothing more than to be an astronaut, check out the series below and see that others feel the sharp twinge of an era now passed.
