DISCUSSION

The above cover art by Chesley Bonestell is described as a "space ship in trouble with meteor swarm; Europa and Jupiter in background." Perhaps, the most exaggerated peril of manned space flight was a collision with a meteor swarm. The vast distances which separate space refuse, meteoroids, and asteroids make such encounters extremely unlikely. Examination of the rubble produced by the above collision is a mystery. For instance, what kind of space suit would appear like the red garment in the foreground? The suit appears inflated. Had the meteor punctured the sealed and pressurized crew quarters, the immediate loss of atmosphere would have evacuated the suit through the helmet attachment flange. Unless the suit was made of a very hard non-pliable fabric or material, it should have collapsed pancake fashion onto itself.
