French artist Invader installing his mosaic artwork inspired by the archetype 1970s Space Invaders video game at the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, Germany.
Invader established his urban alien artwork in 60 cities all over the world, including Rome, Paris, New York, Manchester, Hong Kong and Los Angeles. In 2012 he sent a mosaic into the stratosphere on a high-altitude balloon.
Not content with invading Earth orbit, the Space Invaders are gaining a foothold at ESA establishments all over Europe. The first was seen at ESA’s astronaut centre in Cologne, Germany. Invader installed his artwork at the Neutral Buoyancy Facility, where ESA astronauts are trained underwater for working in space.
