Exploring Space - Ladybird Books (1964)

 
1964                                               Early1970's
 
Ladybird books hold a bit of a special place in the hearts and memories of children growing up in the UK during the 60's 70's.  There's a book on almost every subject, all heavily illustrated with, on the most part, really beautiful rich paintings.  These are by B Knight and are very evocative.

  1. I spotted something you might find interesting:
    "Hold On!" from 1965. It shows Herman's Hermits in space suits singing "Leaning on a Lamp."

    Not a Great film, but they've got good music!

  3. I am very much in favour of lunar mountaineering. I think mountaineering on the Moon would be easier than mountaineering on Earth due to there being less gravity.

    I am also in favour of seeing the Earth in the lunar night. Having seen the Moon in the earthly night, I would now like to look the other way by seeing the Earth in the lunar night.

    This is not to mention seeing the wreck of Luna 2. I believe Luna 2 was the first man-made object to reach the lunar surface.

    1. Just a couple of the many good reasons to go back there one day, Jeremy. Fingers crossed, although it's Mars they seem to be aiming at now days
