Chesley Knight Bonestell, Jr. (January 1, 1888 – June 11, 1986) was an American painter, designer and illustrator. His paintings were a major influence on science fiction art and illustration, and he helped inspire the American space program. A pioneering creator of astronomical art, Bonestell was dubbed the "Father of Modern Space art". This is cover that he did for a 1950s Sci Fi Magazine:
