In today’s world, science fiction has a tremendous impact in entertainment but science fiction has always been around, from the days of Jules Verne to the latest Star Wars movie. In the vast library of successful films of this genre, one of the most popular of recent times predated the enormous success of Star Wars while also spawning a bunch of sequels. This is the one that starred Charlton Heston as a marooned astronaut who found himself on The Planet of the Apes. It is that 1972 film that serves as the inspiration for this Richard Launius design: The Planet of the Apes.
