IT WON’T BE LONG NOW!
Rocket-powered spaceships will make overnight trips to the moon by 1975
IF YOU’D like to be the first human being to take a rocket-powered spaceship trip to the moon you have to get on line. Believe it or not, more than fifteen-hundred moon-lovers have already signed up with New York’s Museum of Natural History to make that first interplanetary flight, scheduled for some time in 1975.
Foolish? Not very. Recent rocket experiments have shown that space travel is almost within our grasp, and as soon as a light, efficient power plant is developed—and it will probably be atomic energy— there will be no limits to man’s ability to explore the outer reaches of space.
Within your lifetime it’s probable that overnight trips to the moon will be as common as a train ride to New York. Flights to Mars or Venus may take our scientists a little longer to accomplish, but the plans are on the drawing board, and who will dare say ”impossible”? Space travel is no longer a dream. All aboard for the moon!
