Hayabusa at Itokawa

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 cornfields.
The full-size artwork (over nine feet wide when printed) is part of a traveling exhibition on asteroids and comets.
