The Largest Solid Rocket Motors Ever Flown

This is just one of the many cool images from a book titled Nasa: Visions Of Space. A book that combines two of my favorite things; Art and Rocketry. Painted by Maria Epes as part of the Nasa Arts Program, the scene depicts one of the SRB's undergoing recovery testing in July of 1980. I love the sense of scale that you get from this image, those things are huge!
