JPL Interstellar Precursor
« on: April 17, 2018, 12:59:39 am »
The first of the "Thousand Astronomical Unit" space probes designed from the late 70's into the 80's. Nuclear electric propulsion would send the craft on a fifty-year mission into interplanetary space to test technologies for a future true interstellar mission, for deep-space science and to map the distant stars. Artwork I've created for US Spacecraft Projects issue #05.

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing
