CICLOPS: Cassini Imaging Central Laboratory for OPerationS

Art Room

Ever since the mid-20th century, when Chesley Bonestell's first austere depictions of Saturn seen from the surface of Titan became an enticing invitation to explore the unknown, generations of astronomical artists following in his stead have transported us through space with finely-crafted visions of alien worlds we could not otherwise have even imagined. Their captivating works -- vivid, visceral and vicariously experiential -- nourished in the viewer a powerful longing for adventure, and inspired many an early astronomer and engineer to dream of a life exploring the solar system.
