I recently found a book my father bought for me when I was 7,The Conquest of Space bought from Marks & Spencer, Im now 36! I kept this book because I was faciniated with space and enthralled by the art in the book. I would often lay in my bed looking through this book in amazement. This painting was one of those I used to spend ages looking at! It has nostalgic happy memories! I too now paint astronomical paintings and subconsciously I think this painting may have been one of the reasons I do. So I'd like to thank you!!! Lucy Walsh.

Once again Elson packs in the detail in a way that no other could do. Beautiful.
