Inspired by his art, Belbruno charts new paths to travel the solar system and explores the cyclical nature of an expanding, and possibly contracting, universe. Belbruno gained fame at NASA when he successfully plotted a revolutionary route to the moon. Recently, he charted a new course to Mars, modeled how life may spread through the cosmos, and calculated evidence for an ever-expanding and contracting universe — all discoveries unlocked by the swirls, symbols and patterns of his art.

Now the subject of the award-winning film "Painting the Way to the Moon," Belbruno has become an advocate for transcending the barriers between the arts and sciences.
