Primeiro ser vivo terrestre a orbitar o planeta Terra, morreu entre cinco e sete horas depois do lançamento. Mas na minha ilustração ela ainda tá viva, e saiu da cápsula pra dar um visu / First living being to orbit the planet Earth, died between five and seven hours after launch. But in my illustration she's still alive, and left the capsule to take a look.
Really stunning. This honestly made me cry a little... I love her expression and how the composition focuses on her looking out into the universe, seeing something that we cannot. Beautiful work, I found this very moving.
