For the bicentenary of Annibale de Gasparis’s birth,
I have researched and studied the most of his corrispondence;
so I liked to imagine the PSYCHE Mission Spacecraft
as a small PAPER airplane in a “modern” shape,
built with some pages of his letters.
In this way I meant to connect the PAST
with the PRESENT and the FUTURE.
I chose just THOSE letters where de Gasparis
announced the discovery of PSYCHE,
as that he sent to A. v. Humboldt on 23 March 1852!
