DISCUSSION

The above cover by artist Jack Coggins is titled "Erecting a communications tower on Triton; Uranus in background." Incidentally, Triton is a satellite of Neptune not Uranus. Triton is approximately the size of the Earth's Moon such that gravity might approximate that of the Moon. The significant concept depicted in the painting is the use of the principles of simple machines to erect the communications tower. Using Triton's surface as the fulcrum, the two astronauts lever the tower into position. A third astronaut applies a moment force to assist in the erection of the tower.
