Again, from Wikipedia, “Chesley Bonestell (January 1, 1888 – June 11, 1986) was an American painter, designer and illustrator. His paintings were a major influence on science fiction art and illustration, and he helped inspire the American space program. An early pioneering creator of astronomical art, along with the French astronomer-artist Lucien Ruduax, Bonestell was dubbed the “Father of Modern Space Art”.
