Your Trip Into Space (1953) part 2

Continuing my scans from this fascinating early space book.

They discussed in the next sections the building of a space station.

 An interesting concept, how to turn trash into rocket fuel.

The book continues with a trip to the moon. They evaluate a couple of ways to construct a moon lander.

 I also like this period illustration of watching the moon landing on television.

 I also really like this final closing to the book, with its positive tone that the reader will be part of a future space program.

  1. They sure don't write kids books like that anymore. The detail they go into on the moon lander design is wonderful!
