In order to make an apple pie from scratch,
you must first create the universe.

— Carl Sagan

    What a wonderful idea! I’ll be sure to check this out everyday in case I can’t get in to see the actual exhibit.

    Brilliant choice of quote (Sagan) to pair with this work! I also love the side panel art ‘slices’ for easy navigation as well as the interesting cross links to other sites.
