Artist Imagines New York City Across Our Solar System

What would New York City look like if you dropped it onto another planet? You wouldn't expect the answer to this question to come from a search website for self-storage companies, but thanks to ex-NASA employee Marilyn Vogel and Pittsburgh artist Nickolay Lamm, that is exactly where you will find it.

 

Vogel, who spent 5 years at NASA Ames worked with Lamm to compile the fascinating pictures and raise awareness of our planet's delicate environment. The end product of their efforts are a series of fascinating images depicting the impact of another planet's atmosphere on Earth's most iconic cityscape.

 

Hosted on Storagefront.com, the collection of images use New York's statue of liberty to examine our solar system's varying atmospheres. From the murky clouds of Venus, to the high speed winds of Uranus, you can find out how Lady Liberty would hold up against some of our solar system's toughest conditions.
