Artistic side of NASA

John Hawks:

The story doesn’t cover the artistic side of NASA, and thereby may leave the impression that Bean is more of an anomaly than he really is. An immense attention to scientific illustration accompanied the development of the space program, as photorealistic renderings of space (and very early on, animated computer graphics) were an important part of spreading the science to the public. Bean’s approach is, of course, very different and helps to extend the tradition outside the technical aspects into the humanistic sphere.
