(Not 'Altitude') Wearing an MMU (Manned Maneuvering Unit)
enables astronauts to fly freely in space. In the
"Attitude Hold" mode, the unit sets its
gyroscopes and maintains a fixed position in space,
firing its thrusters to compensate for any movement of
the wearer.

BAJADA CHUBASCO
Every hundred years or so, a great comet flashes across the
sky for weeks, dazzling viewers on Earth. In fact, the
best comets seem to be fresh, unexpected visitors from
beyond the solar system who make the trip only once.

COMET OF THE CENTURY
One of Kim's early works; his cloud technique developed
early, due in part to the billowing thunderheads of his
native Arizona. The cumulonimbus clouds (Anvil-heads) are
responsible for the most violent thunderstorms.

CUMULONIMBUS
In an area of the Mariner Valley on Mars is the Labyrinthus
Noctis (Labyrinth of the Night) where early morning water
fog is often seen in spacecraft photos.

Dawn in the Labyrinth
This hypothetical nebula is hydrogen-rich and glows with a
characteristic electric pink. We see a newly formed
planet lit by two blue-white supergiant stars. Rivers of
molten lava glow through the newly formed crust.

FIREBIRD NEBULA
The redrock cliffs of Glen Canyon and Lake Powell were the
inspiration for this painting. The combination of the
erosion-sculpted sandstone and the azure water create a
scene of otherworldly beauty. One of our largest prints.

chlorine/flourine/neon atmosphere. Such a mixture may
glow green in the morning twilight.

GREEN PIECE (Emerald Dawn)
One of Kim's most often  published pieces. They say the
Saguaro cacti, peculiar to Arizona and northern Mexico,
are disappearing. Could this be the reason why?

LEAVING TOWN
The Aurora  or Northern Lights, are a spectacular sight in
the Earth's polar regions. High-energy plasmas from solar
eruptions dance along Earth's magnetic field lines, which
converge near the poles.

MAGNETIC STORM
Painted shortly after the Voyager 2 encounter in 1989,
Neptune shows its stripes. The eighth planet has an
unusually warm and active atmosphere.

NEPTUNE
Painted several months before the historic collision with
Jupiter, this print shows smaller fragments of comet
Shoemaker-Levy 9 shower among the clouds of Jupiter near
dawn. A bright fragment lights up a nearby thunderhead
like a Chinese lantern.

flight. Ice and water planets look on. Featured on the
cover of "In Quest of the Universe".

NIGHTHAWK NEBULA
Dawn breaks on a hypothetical planet with ice the color of
pistachio ice cream. At the base of a crater, we see a
giant gas planet looming on the horizon.

PISTACHIO CRATER
The Orion nebula is perhaps the most beautiful in the sky.
The nearest of its type to Earth, about 1500 light years
away, it is a region of intense stellar formation. In
fact the whole huge constellation of Orion is a stellar
nursery.

SPLENDOR IN THE GAS
The Whirlpool Galaxy (M-51) in Canes Venaciti, near the Big
Dipper, is actually an interacting pair of colliding
galaxies.

STARCATCHER
On other planets, atmospheres are made up of strange or
exotic mixtures of gases. All the planets in our solar
system have different colored skies, and this is probably
consistent throughout the universe.

TEAL SKIES
On Dione, a moon of Saturn, the impact of an ancient comet
has created a labyrinth of polar canyons called the Tibur
Chasmae. From this location, Saturn will always appear
near the horizon, and its rings will be seen as a thin
band stretching along the equator.

Mimas.
