I never get sick of posting McCall. This one features Ed White, performing NASA’s first space walk in 1965 (via x-ray delta one.)
I’m pleased to feature some of my favorite works by talented space artist James Vaughan. This first features
the best my favorite orbiter, Discovery.
I’ve always loved this symbolic montage of astronauts, scientists, engineers, and staff. Truly, Norman Rockwell had a knack for capturing the essence of both the ordinary and the extraordinary in life, depicting heroism with everyday humanity.
A companion (in my eyes) to the post from last week, I present the other poster on my wishlist, A History of Space Travel, by Pop Chart Labs. It is glorious. It documents the entire history of manned spaceflight, for every country, in a detailed timeline. I will find room for this in my home, somewhere, someday.
Truly, Robert McCall was a master at his craft. I never get tired of his artwork. Image found via x-ray delta one.
