Before the days of fancy CGI videos, mission promos would often be these beautiful artistic drawings. Here are three examples - focused on Shuttle/Deep Space Probes - found by NSF's digging into the Virginia Tech Libary archives. Name them below!

They should totally bring this back, even if it's digital artwork. So cool.

Often before construction stage, art is still made for Congress/Public by Contractors to get project funding.

One is clearly Galileo, I'd recognize that antenna everywhere 😄 the other two may both be Ulysses, but not sure...

3rd one is Ulysses 1st is Galileo with it's wacky antenna Don't know the 2nd. It looks like New Horizons, but that obviously wasn't launched from a Shuttle.

Cheated a little bit. The 2nd is also Ulysses, but was only an artist's concept for a Centaur-based upper stage instead of the IUS.
