To continue the exploration of this amazing book. I find some of these illustrations much more evoking of science fiction. For example these oversized space vehicles.
The book does a lot to show the details of moon exploration vehicles. This one in particular is truly "screensaver" worthy.
The book also shows many details of a moon base, especially as a platform for further exploration of the solar system.
I do not understand why they choose to have the rocket launch at an angle. Perhaps one of you has an idea.
I suggest this incredible ship may be for a Mars expedition. I can think of no other reason why they are carrying a "winged" plane with them.
See you in part 3 of this post.
