A blank notebook with white papers is visible open on a wooden table, with a pen laid over it.

Painters, musicians, writers and others have long been inspired by space. In ancient times, storytellers looked to the skies, found patterns, or constellations, and created tales about what they saw. Today, there are countless plays, books, songs and other creative works all about space. These works of art have helped inspire many NASA scientists and engineers to pursue their careers in space exploration. And now, their work is inspiring future poets, filmmakers and artists. Maybe it will even inspire you!

In this activity, you'll learn about different kinds of poems and find out how to create your own poetry inspired by space. Keep reading to get started.
