The space-themed artwork of Robert T. McCall has documented the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions for NASA, and his multi-story murals light up the walls at the National Air and Space Museum. This painting of Apollo and Soyuz emphasizes the scene’ s graceful geometry, with the asymmetrical space modules superimposed over a centered Earth.
