© National Geographic Society 489 Kodachrome by Staff Photographers J. Baylor Roberts and Donald McBain Three Minds Create a Painting; Artist and Experts Study a Satellite Model Physicist Singer (center) and author Haber answered technical questions for artist Palmstrom. The rocket and satellite models, designed last winter by Dr. Singer, embody ideas current at the time. It is now known that antennas of the first satellites will be whiplike and that rockets will have no fins and be longer and thinner (page 492). Painting shows an earlier version of the scene on pages 486-7.
