NASA Pioneer to Jupiter

One of my favorite painters Rick Guidice did some wonderful commercial architectural renderings, illustrated aerospace missions for NASA and box cover art for ATARI video games.  Here is an outstanding painting depicting NASA’s Pioneer to Jupiter Mission. This canvas represents the metaphorical slingshot gravity assist the spacecraft would take as it traveled beyond the planet Jupiter to Saturn. (1973)

I have a strong background in architecture, computer technology, English literature, Internet applications, web site design, film studies and modern art. I would like to use this page to express my personal musings and experiences on news, pop culture, nature, art, science, technology and what ever becomes a curiosity.
