With the space shuttle program at it’s closure, our beloved space shuttles retired forever, what will the astronaut do? If you found your self wondering this, I am happy to announce you are not alone. Inspired by this idea, photographer Neil DaCosta and art director Sara Phillips decided to create a project called Astronaut Suicides. “The concept came about after chatting about childhood aspirations,” says Phillips. “As a kid I remembered wanting to be an astronaut, it seems like that’s less likely to be on someone’s lips today. We wanted to acknowledge the end of an era in a visual way that would bring the conversation to the creative community”.
