Sending a kiss into space
The Delft University of Technology is planning to send a satellite into space with a kiss on the outside of it. The launch of the Delfi-C3 will be the first Dutch artwork to make a journey through space. The plan for the Kiss in Space Search Mission was developed together with artist Niek Verschoor. The human kiss will travel through space at a speed of 27,000 km/h. The satellite will be launched into space in September from the space centre on the island of Sriharikota in India.
