Street Artist Invader's Mosaiced Artwork Invades The International Space Station

With a name like Invader and with mosaiced artwork that features the pixelated characters from the iconic 8-bit arcade game Space Invaders, it's entirely fitting that French street artist Invader's work should make it's way into space aboard the International Space Station.

Space2 was the piece that made it up there, where it can be seen held against the windows of the Cupola module on the ISS, resting on a control deck, and floating about in zero gravity.

Invader has been posting the images to his Instagram over the last few weeks and days, along with photos of his works that have been appearing at the European Space Center, European Astronaut Centre, and European Space Agency.

Check out the pieces below. And head to Invader's Instagram for more.
