Analog Science Fiction/Fact Cover Art II

More days of future past from the 1970s with my favorite sci-fi magazine at the time, Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact.

What Skylab was supposed to look like.

This issue featured Pournelle’s “launching laser” concept.

This might actually happen if Musk or Bigelow get their way.

This issue reassessed John W. Campbell’s support of the Dean Drive

and featured one of Orson Scott Card’s early “Ender” tales.

*Sigh* Hard to believe the 1970s can be nostalgic, but hey, compared to Bu$hco’s dystopia, it was Wonderland!
