Space Cadet (1971)

The cover to the New English Library version of Heinlein's Space Cadet sees something a little more generalised.  Its too early to be riffing off of Kubrick's Space Odyssey just yet (see the 1975 cover) so they seem to have drawn inspiration from NASA with a bit of that old Moon Zero Two, UFO sleek sexiness added in 
I can't find a credit for the artist of this cover just yet but I'll edit it in when I do.  I have to say though that it is a fine piece of work and the composition does exactly what it's meant to do which is make you want to read the book
