Who’s Here Now?

Sky Lab

Artist: Peter Hurd, 1973
Media: Watercolor on paper

Peter Hurd participated in the early days of the NASA Art Program, documenting the last Mercury flight.

He returned ten years later to record the launch of Skylab, a rocket modified to allow astronauts to live and work in orbit. The three separate crews of Skylab astronauts arrived via Apollo command modules.
