This is your chance to own a unique 4x6 inch postcard - featuring Cian's image of the full Moon over Blackrock Castle Observatory - which flew to space in 2021.
Did the postcards really go to space?
Yes, they really did!
In 2021, 100 postcards featuring Cian's image launched from the west Texas desert on an 11-minute flight aboard Blue Origin's New Shepard crew capsule. During this time, the postcards traveled at speeds of over 3x the speed of sound, floated weightless for several minutes, while flying high above the Kármán Line - 100km above the Earth - otherwise known as the internationally recognised boundary of space!
Postcard Size: 4x6 inches (10x15cm)
Your postcard will be sealed in a clear protective plastic toploader so it arrives in your postbox in pristine condition.
What can I do with my flown-in-space postcard?
That's completely up to you! However, because you'll want to enjoy looking at both sides of the postcard, I recommend getting your hands on a see-through acrylic frame so you can gaze at the photo of Blackrock Castle on one side, and the "Flown to Space On New Shepard" stamp alongside information about the photo on the other side,
Each postcard will be stamped with Blue Origin's official "Flown to Space On New Shepard - Blue Origin" postmark as shown in the preview images.
In addition, your postcard will be signed by Cian, numbered out of 100 (the remaining 90 postcards will be used for outreach and education purposes at Blackrock Castle Observatory).
You will also be issued with a certificate of authenticity from Cian.
