TOM CORBETT SPACE BOOK : STAND BY FOR MARS

TOM CORBETT STAND BY FOR MARS COVER

Copyright, 1952, by Rockhill Radio


DISCUSSION

Authored in 1952, prior to the unmanned space probes of the 1970s (Viking) and later years, STAND BY FOR MARS had to speculate about the climate of the planets. For example, this description of various space cadet candidates is offered on page 2: "Every year, he had seen boys...gathered from Earth, Mars and Venus, three planets millions of miles apart. They were dressed in many different styles of clothes; the loose flowing robes of the lads from the Martian deserts; the knee-length shorts and high stockings of the boys from the Venusian jungles; the vari-colored jacket and trouser combinations of the boys from the magnificent Earth cities." By clicking on the above planets, examine the errors in the attire worn by candidates from the various planets.
