When Britain led the way.  The artist has turned the background into an abstraction to convey the speed of the Hunter, the aircraft already ahead of the viewer and likely to disappear from sight in a flash.

More 2001 artwork. The casual exploration of our nearest celestial neighbour seem so obviously going to happen back in 1969  - 45 years ago - that for it still to be a dream neatly sums up how small the world and our lives have become.

What the ISS wants to be when it grows up.
That’s unfair. I love the ISS, not least because it flies over my house every day and on the right night I can see it with my bare eyes, but the earth orbit space station from 2001 has been with me most of my life, at least on film and this wonderful movie promo poster.

Art need pay no heed to engineering so wonderful flights of fancy can be created. Even so, a house (with pool and tennis court) takes some imagining.
