9780060730383: Futures: 50 Years in Space: The Challenge of the Stars

This lavish volume is a comprehensively illustrated preview of our future in space as well as a review of past successes and failures. Hardy's illustrations show, for instance, how the surface of each planet and its moons were originally imagined by writers when they worked together over 30 years ago and reveals how our knowlege has been vastly improved by data from satellites, probes and telescopes. Hardy and Moore apply their knowledge and imagination to look into the future of space exploration and to create an artist's impression of a world not yet visible.

About the Author:

David A. Hardy is a former President of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA), and has written and illustrated seven of his own books, as well as producing work for films, TV, the stage, and book, record and magazine covers, both factual and science fiction. A book about his life and work, HARDYWARE, appeared in 2001 (Paper Tiger/Sterling), and in 2003 his first novel, AURORA; A CHILD OF TWO WORLDS was published by Cosmos Books. (Both are available from Amazon.)

From the Back Cover:

"David Hardy's space art is unique. He creates his own special kind of virtual reality. . . FUTURES is a fitting testament to David's long-standing collaboration with Sir Patrick Moore. . . In the pages of this wonderful book these two men take us out to the stars. And beyond." -- Dr Brian May, Queen guitarist and astronomer.
