So, if you want to know what a two-hour stream-of-consciousness discussion with me about All Of The Things Ever sounds like, this is a good example.

My work, floating above the Earth

The Mini Hugo Rocket is a half-scale, machined and polished aluminum version of the rocket from the Hugo trophy. This miniature version was commissioned by Sasquan, the 2015 Worldcon, to be taken into space and displayed as shown aboard the International Space Station. The astronaut who carried it into space and took these photos is Kjell Lindgren.
