Reader KNO3 has all the good ideas. Here’s a comic-ized version of Ellie’s discovery of a new species on Planet X.
Also, for those who didn’t see, the Strang Institute is looking to make available, for a limited time only, a commemorative patch based on those sported by Ellie’s Mission Control Crew. We’ll let you know right here when they’ll be available for purchase. We’re looking at samples right now to make sure we offer only the highest quality!
There’s a special exhibit running at Mission Control now through the end of the year – everything you ever wanted to know about Jeff. Get over there and see it. It’s really something.
And look! They used my art on the outside of the building. How cool is that?
Reader KNO3 asked if we ever planned on making Ellie’s Mission Patch for you readers to purchase. Is this something you would be interested in? I’m in the process of pricing them out. I could set up a Kickstarter so there wouldn’t be any overhead.
Just so you know, the original patch (below right) is no longer in use at the Strang Institute. We’re currently sporting the updated version on the left.
Let us know what you think!
Things are a little slow at here at Mission Control. Ellie keeps sending her data and we keep interpreting it. We’ll let you know if she discovers anything exciting.
Just a quick note: I’ll be at the MSU Comics Forum this Saturday in Lansing, MI. I’ve got some comics and sketchbooks for sale, and…I’ve got the first 50 pages of the Ellie Graphic Novel if you wanna peek at ’em! That’s Saturday, February 21, 11 am to 5 pm.
Meanwhile, I’m going to take a break and catch up on my reading.
Mission Control’s head of the Astro-Communications department, Dr. Michelle McNichols, points out a surprising new discovery to other Ellie team members.
From left to right: alien biology expert Peanut; one of our new interns (behind the globe); Dr. McNichols; Strang Institute Director Dr. Leo Strang; and from the original Ellie team over forty years ago: planetary geologist Dr. Zahi Sharif; robotics engineer Dr. Roukia Sowadaogo; astrobiologist Deepa Baruah; and astrophysicist Dr. Shin Hayata.
Update: Here’s the color version!
