Last Pictures

Day 6

On Tuesday a rocket is set to launch into orbit, where it will spend the next 15 years beaming video back to Earth. After that it'll boost into a higher orbit - into a junkyard belt where it will remain until long after we are all gone. Bolted to its side is a small, gold plated disc. And inside that disc, are 100 images, etched in silicone. It's an elaborate art project called "The Last Pictures". American artist Trevor Paglen and the nonprofit organization Creative Time are the creators of this disc.
