What the Telescope Told Us (1972)

I was excited to get a 1st edition of this popular book. It has some beautiful paintings of Soviet future exploration of the Solar system.

Klushantsev, P. Illustrations by E. Voishvillo. What the Telescope Told Us. Moscow : L. Detgiz. (66 p.) 28 cm. 1972.

 I like the mix of the Lunokhod 1 rover and the bottom half of the LEM in the painting as they roam the Moon.
 This is the expedition to Mercury (It is OK, we will go at night)
 Expedition to Venus.
 An illustration of some of the ideas about Mars
 An actual Martian expedition
 Observing Jupiter
 Observing Saturn
 Closer to Saturn. Please note the artist in space trying to capture the scene with his paint palette. Space art at its rawest!
 Expedition from earth
 The brave new future in space. (I like the "space bus." Next stop Outer Space.)
