Cover Illustration: The cover of this issue features Jackie Baughman’s artistic interpretation of the Apollo 13 insignia. NASA’s original description of that mission insignia: “Apollo, the sun god of Greek mythology, was represented as the Sun, with three horses driving his chariot across the surface of the Moon, symbolizing how the Apollo flights have extended the light of knowledge to all mankind.”
