I have a picture in my head about these three scientists. They are/were like average aged men who don’t like their phone, because they find them hard to use. They preferably like to invent new technologies rather than use them. We should respect everybody who can reach this level of altruism.

Planetary Resources Inc The Asteroid Mining Company by Oliver Sin
I made this science art picture about the Planetary Resources Inc. It’s company who started a revolution in the field asteroid mining. This alliance between scientists and billionaires will change the political construction of our society, because they will possess more resources from the space, than all other firms or governments can have in the next hundred years.
Space mining, asteroid mining– may sound even familiar, provided you know E.E. Smith’s Lensman series. Well, science-fiction may become real, as Planetary Resources announced that it’s going to mine outa space, so to say.
And why would they do that? Well, most of the precious metals and minerals on Earth derive from asteroid impacts, not to mention that their concentration in asteroids can be multiple hundred times higher than here on Earth. Modern technology and luxury craft uses gold, platinum, rhodium, iridium, ruthenium, and osmium – all which are rare and expensive. But what if we had a near infinite supply of them?
Yet, even of a greater value is the water these asteroids may contain. As boosting water into the space is very costly, it would reduce the cost of space missions by a lot if there was a space water-source. And from that water even hydrogen could be made, which is one component of the rocket fuel (the other is oxygen). So mining asteroids seems absolutely reasonable.
And that is what Planetary Resources thinks too. First they try to find the richest asteroids for mining with their Arkyd-100 space telescopes. Then, the promising candidates are examined by the Arkyd-200s. The swarm of Arkyd-300 series will finalize the selection taking complementary measurements. After that, the mining process can start. How? Well, it still needs some further research, but it is surely worth the efforts.

Ben Joseph Green is a British mathematician, interested in number theory and combinatorics, having published several results in both fields. Terence Chu-Shen Tao is an Australian mathematician working in random, matrix theory, analytic number theory, combinatorics, and some other fields of mathematics. In 2004 the two mathematicians solved an old conjecture according to which the sequence of prime numbers contains arbitrary long arithmetic progressions. (That is: we can always find somewhere in the infinity of integers a progression of prime numbers of any length with equal spacing – like 3, 7, and 11, which is a progression of primes with 4 spacing, and it is a 3 number progression as the next number, 15, is not a prime.) This theory is called the Green-Tao theorem, which is an extension of Szemerédi’s theorem (in 1975 Endre Szemerédi solved the Erdős-Turán conjecture for the general k).

I always wanted to paint about something more durable than others, that’s why I use numbers.
Numbers are the cards in a game we used to call universe. I think that all the mathematicians feel this in their heart, but do not know it. They love to gamble for the big hit. “Untitled N” is the deck of cards.
Rockstars and mathematicians are the same. They deserve fame, glory and electric guitars. Smirnov mostly plays in the genres of complex analysis, dynamical systems and probability theory.

Stanislav Smirnov is a Russian mathematician, mostly known of his percolation theory. Percolation theory describes the relation and behaviour of connected clusters in a random graph, a randomly generated abstract representation of vertices (a set of objects) with edges (links exist between some pairs of the objects). The theory’s name comes from its representative question, which is the following. Assuming that some liquid is poured on top of some porous material, will it be able to make its way from hole to hole and reach bottom? Another model for it is like this: if we immerse a porous stone into water what is the probability of the centre of the stone getting wet? The question was introduced by Broadbent & Hammersley in 1957.
This science art painting strated with an idea about the light that changes everything. How it reinvents objects, how it makes a perfect deception. Mostly we receive information throught vision from our world, so it is very important to know how it works for the everybody.
I’ve made this science art painting for the Friss Gallery (Budapest) in 2010. It was a competition with a given theme, Hungaricum 2010. Hungaricum is name that only the best and unique Hungarian products or inventions can get. They didn’t choose my work and I forgot for a couple months that there is my painting too. Meanwhile I sold it to a friend for a pack of cigarette, while the picture was at the gallery. After the deal I went to the gallery, but it was closed completely and I never saw again the picture. So this artwork has been lost. I’ve taken photo the night when I finished the painting.
