Supernova in Brockley (and in our blood)

As part of the Brockley Street Art Festival organised by Global Street Art and Brockley Max, Artmongers was commissioned to create a new mural by STEAM:ED Collective to bring Art and Science together and onto a quiet street of South East London. We worked with Astrophysicist Steve Fossey, from UCL, who recently discovered supernova SN 2014J in Messier 82 (aka The Cigar Galaxy). In conversation with him, he said he was moved by the thought that the iron in our blood was the legacy of supernovae, which gave us a very intimate relation with the universe.
