Henri Regnault, Automedon with the Horses of Achilles, 1868
From the Boston Museum of Fine Arts:

Regnault’s painting illustrates a story from Homer’s Iliad. Automedon, chariot driver for the Greek warrior Achilles, restrains the horses Xanthos (behind) and Balios, two beasts who could predict the future. As Regnault wrote, “the horses, aware that their master [Achilles] is taking them into combat, and that this combat will be the last and will cost him his life, struggle and wrest with the groom who has come to take them from their pasture. One of them,chestnut brown, rises like a great dark phantom, outlining himself against the sky. I wanted to give the picture a foretaste of disaster.”

Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears […] the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.” - Italo Calvino

NASA SPACE PROGRAM ( 12th April,1981)Kennedy Space Center, Fla.— The Space Shuttle rises majestically above Launch Complex 39-S, Pad A on the first leg of its maiden journey to space. On board for the historic flight are the Astronauts John Young & Robert Crippen, scheduled to spend nearly 54 hours in space on this first shakedown test of America’s new reusable Space Transportation System, ” S.T.S.”. The Sunday morning lift off came a few seconds after 7:00 a.m. and marked the dawn of a new era in space flight.
