Week Eight: Space

Our next topic will be Space, not our final, but certainly a very interesting and expansive frontier. Colorful nebulae, Plutonians, dashing heroes, and rocket ships will be blasting off, so prepare your tin-foil hats, space boys and girls.

This image is from Space Patrol, a comic book adapted from a television and radio series that ran from 1950 to 1955. At the time, Space Patrol was "America's greatest space drama," at least according to this book cover. Looks pretty exciting to us; it's not everyday that a man with perfectly kempt hair wallops a sleeveless alien.

Until next Tuesday, Cadets, live long and prosper.

Yes, Space Patrol was wildly popular in its day - and still is for many of us "cadets" who remember it.
