Space Illustration by Virgil Finlay

Illustration by Virgil Finlay

I can’t resist posting one more fantastic illustration by Virgil Finlay, from The Complete Book of Space Travel by Albro Gaul, published in 1956. (First post is here.)

This is admittedly my favorite of the bunch. There’s tons of beautiful detail in this dynamic illustration. The combination of lightning bolts and concentric (dizzying) circles overlaying the pilot’s face makes for a disturbing scene. We don’t know what’s going on, but clearly it’s dangerous. Not exactly happy-fun-time for Mr. Astronaut!
