We welcomed back to the show Doug Stewart with Ron Miller to discuss the film and opening of "Chesley Bonestell: A Brush With The Future."  During our 89 minute discussion, not only did we focus on the film and its release during the Covid pandemic, we talked about space art in general, the life and times of Bonestell, his space art but also the rest of his work plus the awareness of Bonestell and his contributions on a global level.  As I have done before, I have copied the tags and key words, posting them below, as they follow the discussion and the main topics including a call and multiple email listener questions.  In listening to the discussion, you will get the details behind the key words plus in many instances you will get a much deeper look into the life of Bonestell and all his work and accomplishments, not just his space art.

Tags and Key Words:  Doug Stewart, Ron Miller, the film Chesley Bonestell: A Brush With The Future, film making challenges, Chesley Bonestell history and accomplishments, New Zealand, film distribution, V2 rockets, science fiction, rocket reality vs. Bonestell rockets, added film features on Blue Ray, Bonestell collections and museums, Paul Allen Foundation, public awareness of Bonestell, Robert Goddard, German Rocket Society, Bonestell and NASA, landscape painter, space artist Don Davis, International Association of Astronomical Artists (, Bonestell and Mars, Bonestell and Pluto, Bonestell estate, Bonestell personal life, Bonestell international recognition, SpaceX and Bonestell art

Several times during the discussion Doug talked about how to see the film. He also noted that the distribution company in charge of releasing and distributing the film only added the bonus features to the Blue Ray version of the film.  You can get more information about the film, how to see it and buy if you want plus the bonus features by visiting the film website,

Please post any questions you might have along with comments on our blog for this show.  In addition, we would like your feedback after you watch the film. What would you like to know about Chesley Bonestell, his art, his life and how he saw the future in so many of his space paintings?
