Reaching For The Stars - Astronauts By Alan Bean

Reaching For The Stars - Astronauts by Alan Bean

In his book "Apollo: An Eyewitness Account," Alan Bean says of "Reaching for the Stars," "In one sense this is a painting of a universal astronaut, symbolizing everyone who flew in Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and Apollo-Soyuz. It also represents those who fly on space shuttles and will fly on a space station and on future missions only dreamed about at this time. The astronaut is an emissary of us all, soaring away from our planet earth ... But in a broader view ['Reaching for the Stars' symbolizes] all of us who possess a dedicated and adventurous spirit no matter what our interests or age."
