Astronauts have joined oil derricks, armadillos and even the rainbow-like colors of Houston Astros baseball uniforms as iconic images representing Houston.
It’s never too early to dream about becoming an astronaut and exploring space, especially in Houston where images of space can easily be found around town. An example is this mural decorating the walls of Texas Art Supply in the Montrose area.
Among the many displays at the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Sugar Land is a mural of the solar system with each planet drawn to scale. Discovering the relative size of Jupiter compared with our home on planet Earth can be mind-boggling for explorers young and old alike.
