I feel very fortunate that many people like it, and I have received many congratulations and interesting offers from all over the world.

This picture has brought me great satisfaction. Basically it already has its own life.

The biggest surprise was when it was considered as background for the crew portrait photo of the 28 crew of the International Space Station ISS. Incredible!!!

Another image was finally chosen, but I was very honored to have been considered.
