All of these plaques, with the exception of the Apollo 13 plaque, were left on the moon by Apollo mission astronauts. They are awesome. These images are from NASA’s official website.

It’s pretty amazing what you can buy on Amazon for $3. Destination Moon is one of those great finds. It’s one of the first space exploration movies that took into consideration the prospect, technology, and problems of space travel (Fritz Lang’s “Frau Im Mond” also attempted this in 1929 although little was know about feasible space travel.) The film was produced by George Pál, who later produced “When Worlds Collide”, “The War of the Worlds”, and “The Time Machine”. The film won the Academy Award for best visual effects in 1950!
I even found some great stills in the LIFE photography archive! The vision of space suits in the future is AWESOME!

The sounds of space age pop filled bachelor pads far and wide in the 1960’s. Below are some of my favorite album covers! Images via.

I almost fell over when I saw this! I love everything from the angled edges to the spike on top!
The gentleman in this 1959 Viceroy Ad bears a strong resemblance to Mr. Rod Serling; coincidence?
