The authors, brothers, one an artist and the other a space research engineer, collaborated on the production of a series of intaglio prints dealing, as a conceptual whole, with new scientific and technological subjects and with their social implications. The goals of the project, the introspective reasoning of the collaborators, the content of the prints and the manner in which the content was treated are described. Their belief is that artworks treating scientific and technological subjects not only can give emotional satisfaction to individual viewers but can help them to bring about a better use of science and technology for the welfare of humanity.
