Shasta Visions Provides The National Space Society Speaker Awards for the 31st Annual International Space Development Conference.

Washington, DC– “We’re extremely honored to be chosen again to design the awards for the esteemed speakers and VIP’s for this Conference,” says Richard Lucas, owner of Shasta Visions of Northern California. Celebrating 25 years in business, their Planet Earth Art line includes recycled glass Globes, made in the USA, as corporate gifts, awards, marbles, keytags & jewelry. Their Natural Earth Spheres and Marbles, including the Moon and Mars, represent the very finest in sphere-printing technology. You can see hundreds of rivers and islands, lakes, icecaps, deserts, rainforests, and shadow relief mountain ranges in amazing detail! These features are permanently hand-fired into the Globes and will last indefinitely, to be passed down as a cherished keepsake for generations. The extreme detail and accuracy show how truly small our World is!

The Awards created for this Conference are Pyramids with beautiful miniature Earth, Mars & Moon Marbles to scale inside, floating with the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle, to portray the Space Society’s Mission to promote social, economic, technological, and political change in order to expand civilization beyond Earth, to settle space and to use the resulting resources to build a hopeful and prosperous future for humanity.

Our mission at Shasta Visions is "To inspire caring for the World by creating beautiful products that express global and space awareness." Shasta Visions' products inspire these with the attention to detail and simply by their beautiful existence.
