Your Science Gallery Xmas Card Has Arrived

at

Nobody likes a smart arse.

In the vacuum of space, radio waves travel at the speed of light. So transmissions broadcast on Earth one year ago are now one light year away.  Based on the date of their first transmission, this card charts the location of some of humanity’s favourite Christmas anthems and on what star they will debut this year.

Concept: Shaun O’Boyle Artist: Clare Aherne

And that’s not all.
