KIRKUS REVIEW

Space artist David C. Hardy visualizes some breathtaking solar system scenery -- the surfaces of Venus and Mercury, the view of Jupiter from Amalthea, future mining operations on Titan -- and lets his fantasies run free with paintings of alien life forms, an ""alien radio telescope"" and ""hypothetical"" star systems. Each full page vista is drawn with literal minded clarity and an eye to extant space probe data and accompanied by a page of close print commentary by astronomer Patrick Moore.
