«I believe that space activities are impacting society through the arts. The role of art is to stimulate the imagination and enhance the sensitivity of humans, and things like pictures of the Earth’s surface, Mars’s surface, and 'Earthrise' as seen from the moon have affected a lot of people.» ~ Ayako Ono.
