Bonestell's Evolution Of the Earth

Taking a break from the  "File-O-Code" (gasp!) stuff. Back in 1955 Life 
magazine published a series of  articles and a book titled, "The World We Live 
This was the project that  made Rudolph Zallinger's Yale dinosaur murals 
famous. As a six year-old kid,  however, none of the images presented impressed 
as much as Chesley  Bonestell's paintings. The one that really got to me is 
now up for auction at  eBay. The painting shows the earth from its origin to 
its distant end. When I  saw this, the concept of enormous time began to sink 
into my little brain. It  was wonderful and frightening at the same time. I 
believe the Boston Museum of  Science owned this at one time. I wish all the 
paintings from this project could  be rephotographed and reproduced once again. 
hope this one finds a good home.  DV
