Nicole Stott is an Artist and Astronaut who creatively combines the awe and wonder of her spaceflight experience with her artwork to inspire everyone’s appreciation of our role as crewmates here on Spaceship Earth. She is the first person to paint a watercolor in space.
Nicole spent over 3 months in space on the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle; and she is also an Aquanaut, having lived underwater for a 3-week mission on the Aquarius undersea habitat. She believes that the international model of peaceful and successful cooperation we have experienced in these extreme environments of space and sea hold the key to the same kind of peaceful and successful cooperation for all of humanity here on Earth.
She is a co-founder of the Space for Art Foundation and Constellation.Earth
