DISCUSSION

The artist's rendering of the space vehicle replicates the structural design of the B-17 type aircraft of World War II. No propulsion system is suggested or shown although the craft appears as simply the forward fuselage of a World War II B-17 bomber. The positioning of the planets with respect to Earth (lower left corner of cover) is wholly inaccurate.
