“3..2..1..0 - All engines running, liftoff!”
National Geographic asked 11 artists to create 11 artworks commemorating Apollo 11‘s 50th anniversary.
Inspired by the excitement and fascination that the world must have felt during the liftoff of such a groundbreaking expedition, we created an illustration centered on the launch of Apollo 11 from the spectators' viewpoint. The frame around the sky and rocket forms a stylized astronaut helmet, where the moon is reflected in the helmet’s visor. This element symbolizes how the astronauts became windows into space for the millions of people watching the event through the television screen.
