Dan Dare's Space Book (1954) part 3

This is the last part of my illustrations from the Dan Dare's Space Book (1954). The book had a nice color illustration of a "real" rocket launch. The book goes on to speculate what might be next in our space future. Beyond the moon lies Mars...

 The caption is pretty interesting so I thought you would like to read about what the future looked like from 1954 (similar yet unique from Chesley Bonestell's paintings of Mars.)
 Lastly I leave you with this illustration of some very British looking space explorers.  (personally I think we need more astronauts with handlebar mustaches).
