Explore one of the most iconic stained-glass windows at Washington National Cathedral with an in-depth virtual tour of “The Scientists and Technicians Window”, also known as the Space Window. Learn how artist Rodney Winfield of St. Louis created the design to symbolize the macrocosm and microcosm of space and incorporates a 25 oz. basalt lunar rock.
