Space projects

Aurora; Another secret U.S. hypersonic aircraft. This illustration was made in 1991 for a book by Wim Dannau. The Aurora is a Top-secret project, a remnant of the US "blackbox" projects of the 70s and 80s, such as the F117 "Stealth" and B2 Bomber. Although very little is known about it, it is supposed to fly at speeds around Mach 7-9. Wim Dannau and son Erik Viktor were specialized in unveiling Black box projects. Their illustrated stories were published worldwide
Aurora 2; Another illustration from 1991(see above) showing the black box spy plane during its reentry in the atmosphere.
Ariane 5/EPS; This is an illustration he made for DAIMLER-BENZ AEROSPACE in 1997. It shows the stage separation between the first stage and the EPS
.Ariane in the sky; This is large painting he produced for MAN Technology in Germany. It can be seen in the entrance Hall of their Headquarters in Karlsfeld (Munich). It measures 2.5 m x 3.0 m. Acrylic on canvas.
At the edge of the Galaxy; This painting too is in entrance hall of MAN Technology in Karlsfeld (see above). It measures 2.5 m x 8.0 m. Acrylic on canvas. It shows our planet and its moon in the Milky Way Galaxy.
Astrospas; This illustration was produced NASA, DAIMLER- BENZ AEROSPACE A.G., and the German Space Agency DARA. The U.S. Space Shuttle crew liked it so much that they wore a T-Shirt in space with the painting on it.
1995-2000; This is the illustration that started Erik Viktor's career. When he was asked in october 1984 by his father if he could produce a small "drawing" for his newest book about artificial planets, he produced this unique work after 21, 16 hour days of hard work. It was his first attempt at painting and using an airbrush. The illustration was an immediate success, being published within a month by over 26 magazines worldwide. At the time there were no documents showing the planned NASA space Station, not even at NASA. Interestingly, the present "Alpha" Station layout, the one being built, resembles this drawing with its "tower power concept, even though the station has gone through very different design stages in the last 14 years.
Burning Earth; Illustration from 1991 showing the burning oil fields in Kuwait at the end of the Gulf war. It is also meant as a symbol, a warning for what may happen if we don't take care of our planet. If the sky looks rather murky there is still some hope left (for the future and humanity) as the sun is still shining behind.
Cluster; This illustration shows the start of the first and ill fated Ariane V -501 with its four Cluster Satellites. It was the official painting for this project for DAIMLER- BENZ AEROSPACE A.G..
Earth-Bound Asteroid; An Asteroid is being deflected from its deadly course. This illustration and the article he wrote were returned to him by leading magazines worldwide in 1990 as being too "utopic" (impossible). 4 Years later Comet Shoemaker Levy made the theme a fashionable hit, by impacting the planet Jupiter. Sometimes it takes a hit to make one (a hit).
Mars Ambler; Illustration (1990) made for NASA Robotics Department showing the "Pathfinder" ancestor. This "Slower, More expensive, Worse" philosophy was abandoned for the "Faster, Cheaper, Better" projects of today. MTFF; Another painting showing a Space Station and a Shuttle (1991).
MIR accident; This is an illustration the artist is very proud of. It shows the accident on board the Space Station MIR in 1997... except that it was made ten years earlier in 1987! Nearly everything in this painting became true; from the U.S. Shuttle docking, the MIR configuration, and the module accident to the fire that nearly killed the crew.
MIR 1991; This illustration was produced for the Flug Revue in Germany it shows the Space Station with a Shuttle ready to dock.
MIR 1992; Painting produced for the entrance hall of the German Space Agency DARA. It shows the docking of the TM-24 Soyuz with German astronaut K.D.Flade on board. It was the same mission that transported Erik Viktor's painting "Nord-deutschland" to the space station.
Mars base; This illustration was made during the night  at the HQ offices of the Belgian 4th armored infantry Brigade in Soest (Germany), back in 1988 while Erik Viktor was doing his military service. It shows a common Soviet-US mars Mission.
Moon walk; This is an illustration he made for a well known CB manufacturer in Germany. One of the twelve astronauts that walked on the Moon seems to have lost or forgotten something (it still seems to work after 30 years!!).
Saenger; This illustration and painting for MBB-DAIMLER BENZ AEROSPACE was produced to illustrate the German Government Project Saenger. It was produced and distributed in all kinds of ways including as posters. Many ended up framed in offices or even Museums. The original was sold to Eugen Saenger's son.
Space Fighter; Lit by powerful searchlights, a futuristic Space fighter await its scramble call (1991). When Erik Viktor showed this painting to NASA officials they said they didn't like the NASA logo next to the Air Force one, until I reminded them that this was exactly what the famous X-15 Space plane had as markings. The name of the craft Big Joe is also a reminder of these successful planes nicknamed Lil Joe.
Space Station; Standing out on a magnificent Nebula background, a Space Station is being approached by two Shuttles (1987). This illustration and story were also published in a very famous french Playboy issue showing "Madame Le Pen".
Spaceport 2157; In balance on a "Lagrange" point between the Earth and the Moon, a captured Asteroid is being mined and transformed as a Space-port. The nickel and other valuable metals found on the Planetoid are being used for the construction of spaceships, infrastructure and habitats, while the cavities are used as long-term, radiation safe heavens for the crew. This painting illustrated an article by Isaac Asimov in 1989 for the french magazine Figaro.
Salyut 7 crash; The old Soviet Space Station disappears in a sea of flames as it enters the Earth's atmosphere over Holland.
