This Is What the Statue of Liberty Would Look Like on Uranus

Remember that apocalyptic photo of the Statue of Liberty as Hurricane Sandy descended on Manhattan? Nearly swallowed by a massive, menacing cloud, the statuesque lady managed to look both fragile and a symbol of strength as the storm descended. The image turned out to be fake, but the imagination of its creator has not been forgotten. In this vein, artist Nickolay Lamm with the help of former NASA researcher Marilyn Vogel, illustrated what the Statue of Liberty would look like if it were placed on other planets.

Below we see the iconic landmark on Mercury, whose landscape is similar to the moon. We see her on Venus, which is dotted with erupting volcanoes spewing a yellowish cloud of hot, sulfurous air, that takes over NYC's skyline. On Mars, strong storms would render much of the Big Apple's surface area dusty for months at a time, caked in red. Saturn has such strong atmospheric gases our lady's green patina would likely dissolve, while clouds of ammonia would float freely around her.
