Man to the Moon (1962) part 2.

A continuation of my blog post of contractor's drawings and illustrations of how the Moon might be explored.

Rush, Hanniford. Man to the Moon: The Wonderful World of Project Apollo. Chicago: Rand McNally and Co. (96 p.) 27 cm. Softcover. 1962.
This next set of illustrations shows what life on the Moon might be like. This is futurism at its finest. Moonbases and settlements in the future that didn't happen (yet?)

  A brilliant way to form underground spaces for your Moon house.
Of course once we have settle the Moon we will have to imagine what it would be like to live there for extended periods.

Finally it is assumed we will not stop at the Moon, so how we move beyond life on (and near) Earth?

  1. As a kid I had a copy of this book, and I loved those pictures. The book finally fell apart (cheap binding) and I couldn't even remember its name. Thank you for some happy memories of the future.
