THE SPACE MURAL, AT THE NATIONAL AIR AND SPACE MUSEUM, WASHINGTON DC

The Space Mural - A Cosmic View (1976).  You will find it on a south lobby wall at the museum.


It was crowded when we visited a few weeks ago, so I couldn't get this amazing mural in one frame. It was painted by Robert T. McCall (1919-2010).  You can see the whole mural and read more here.

  2. It is really cool! I grew up in D.C., but was never here. Perhaps it was not built yet back then.

  13. Wow---what a gorgeous mural... I'd love to visit that museum sometime... My youngest son is a 'space nut' ---keeps up with all of what is going on in the Space Industry.. Now --he is very involved keeping up with SpaceX..... I love talking to him since he is so knowledgeable.

    Hugs,

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.
