This list tries to put together artists in the context of a contemporary art practice who relate to space (as in outer space) in their work. This definition contrasts to what the term space art refers in the wikipedia. If you perform a search on Google:Space Art you'll see that he term space art is generally associated with science fiction style illustrations of outer space. The article wikipedia:Space Art is heavily edited by members of the International Association of Astronomical Artists which feature cheesy pictures of astronauts, space craft and colorful planetary scenery. Since the Hubble Space Telescope delivers even more spectacular images then previsioned by air-brush illustrators the demand for “artistic” renderings of the outer space has arguably declined, the IAAA's website looks like it's from the 90ies.
