An allegory and a little homage to John Singer Sargent.

In addition to the beneficial warmth and light we receive daily, our sun expels a constant wave of dangerous charged particles we call the solar wind. When solar storms occur, flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) can be thrown our way at speeds of millions of kilometers per hour. Luckily, movement within earths molten metal core generate a protective magnetic shield around our home planet. Without our magnetosphere to protect us, the solar wind may have long ago stripped away Earth’s atmosphere, leaving Earth looking much more like Mars looks today: barren, dry, and lifeless.

The magnetosphere is just one of the many extraordinary things that make life possible on our little world.

Art to help make science a more meaningful part of our lives.

Through countless mythological and religious traditions, humanity has proven to have a deep-seated need for awe-inspiring stories and the experience of wonder. With a powerful resonance, these stories provide a framework for understanding where we fit in our communities, and in our cosmos. They can also give a us a feeling of shared connection and participation with the rest of humanity, helping us to show our more caring and compassionate side.

What are the resonant, positive, and awe-inspiring stories of today? How can our expanding scientific knowledge drive our enchantment with the natural world and grow our empathic interests toward our fellow humans? Exploring these questions visually, Rob hopes to promote or create the stories that best help us to achieve these goals.
