A rare multiple of the portable collection of post-war and contemporary art La Lune en Rodage IV. The art works were gathered by Carl Laslzo and included the greatest artists of the time who contributed with important pieces, often marking a turning point in their production and carriers: Enrico Castellani’s work for example is his first documented graphic work and Piero Manzoni's multiple Achrome is the only one produced by the artist.

 

Frank J. Malina is considered by some to be the father of modern rocketry. Born on October 2, 1912, in Brenham, Texas to Czech immigrants, his life was a rare combination of science and art. In 1934, Malina received a graduate fellowship from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), where he quickly became involved with its Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory (GALCIT). In his dissertation he examined the problems of rocket propulsion and sounding rocket flight performance. Malina served as an assistant professor at Caltech from 1942 until 1946. (source: NASA)
