Junior Scholastic March 23 (1955)

A space issue of Junior Scholastic from 1955.  I am fascinated how these "school" newspapers give a parallel story of the the space age. For example this story about the United States will lead in space.

This story below is a little goofy. They took a picture of a moon base and used it to describe future airports.

The last story is about "Conquest of Space." Personally I find this a terrible film with great visuals. The creation of scenes that echo Chesley Bonestell's space paintings from Colliers is worth the effort (Also tuning the sound down may be required)

  1. The story may be a little goofy, but I really like the Airport picture!
