Against the backdrop of the lunar module Falcon, Apollo 15 astronaut Dave Scott illustrates the hand of the Italian Renaissance on one of our century's greatest achievements. The moon's lack of atmosphere provided the ideal conditions to confirm what Galileo Galilei had concluded centuries before, as both hammer and feather, dropped simultaneously, contacted the moon's surface at the same time. To the principle that in a vacuum objects fall at the same rate regardless of mass, Scott was able to report, "How about that, this proves that Mr. Galileo was correct in his findings." The Hammer and the Feather is complemented by pencil sketches of Scott and the artist printed in the margin.
Each print has been hand-countersigned by Dave Scott.

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, you must include your phone number and location. We'll get back to you quickly.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" or "bid" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
