Artist Bob McCall, participating in NASA's art program, works on a sketch of STS-1 astronauts John Young and Bob Crippen undergoing suit-up operations a few hours before the scheduled first launch of the Space Shuttle Columbia on April 10, 1981.

As someone who has taken up painting as a hobby in the last couple of years, I was very interested when I saw this photo and had to check out Robert McCall's website and researched the painting of STS-1...
Thanks for sharing Ed.

Any idea if there were artist(s) to make drawings of the Pioneer and/or Voyager spacecraft while these were encapsulated.
Pioneer and Voyager were truly pioneering missions...
