Patients at Johns Hopkins Pediatric Oncology Unit will have their artwork sent to space.

The hospital was one of 10 across the country to participate in the Spacesuit Art Project. 

Young patients were able to Skype with Astronaut Nicole Stott while painting canvasses that will be stitched together by a contractor who makes NASA spacesuits.

Once the work is all done, the spacesuit will be launched to the International Space Station.

The Space Suit Project is aimed at raising awareness of childhood cancer and promoting the healing power of art. Click here for more information about the project.
