What is Astronomical / Space Art, and why use it?

Space and Astronomical Art strives to illustrate the Universe. The genres overlap and the border is vague. What is important to notice is that space and
astronomical art is based on the knowledge we have of the Universe
.

I see space and astronomical art as a complement to real astronomical imagery. By basing the artwork on knowledge in astrophysics, chemistry and other
sciences, the artist can overcome technological and physical barriers and create a probable view of an environment that is otherwise unaccessible to us.

Of course, the art shares an advantage with real astronomical photography: the ability to inspire people to explore this vast and magnificent Universe!
