O artista e o astrónomo.

"Vicent Van Gogh's Starry Night is the first painting I know of where the background is the subject of the painting. And the background is the night sky. It elevated the cosmos to become fair game to the artist. And I submit to you that cosmic discovery does not become mainstream until the artist embrace it."
