From Imagination to Reality

  • K. F. Long


In this final chapter of the book we explore the fantastic imagery that is space exploration. Although each image is accompanied by a brief caption, the images speak for themselves and cover the broad spectrum of earth to orbit transport, interplanetary spacecraft and interstellar vessels. The range of possibilities invented by physicists and engineers is boundless and the imagination holds no limit. For as long as mankind can use his hands, his eyes and his mind, he can paint, sketch or click a scene that would appear to the casual observer one of science fiction.
