Here's a look at a very large
illustration I did for the Space Science Institute in Colorado. It
depicts the Japanese spacecraft Hayabusa (Falcon), which a few years
ago stooped gently to the surface of the tiny, roving clump of rocks
called the asteroid Itokawa. Yeah, it looks big, but actually at only
1,800 feet long the entire asteroid would fit neatly in many Midwest
The full-size artwork (over
nine feet wide when printed) is part of a traveling exhibition on
asteroids and comets.
