50 Years in Space: What We Thought Then... What We Know Now
AAPPL Artists & Photographers Press, Limited, 2006 - Science - 112 pages
Patrick Moore, one of the world’s best-known astronomers and host of the BBC’s record-breaking series The Sky at Night, joins forces with celebrated “space artist” David Hardy in a lavishly illustrated look at our evolving images of space. Looking back to their 1972 classic, Challenge of the Stars, Moore and Hardy show how early space art sometimes proved amazingly prophetic—incorporating ideas about spacecraft and space stations that would later come true. They also show how some of the spectacular fantasies of the ’70s gave way to realities more fantastic still, such as the canyons of Mars, the geysers on Triton, neutron stars, and black holes.
