DISCUSSION

The spacecraft in the above artwork reflect the jet aircraft configurations of the early 1950s. The artist simply replaced a jet engine with a rocket propulsion system. Note that no air scoops exist on the rocketships. Unlike jets, rockets must supply oxygen (in onboard tanks) for combustion. They cannot use atmospheric oxygen since none exists in the vacuum of space.
