Space 1966: plans for alternative Moon landings

Firstly, sorry for the long silence. Posts will be a little more sporadic now due to my workload.

Here’s something worth reading in the mean time:

David F.S. Portree, who must have surely earnt the nickname “sci-fi” has blogged a great piece at Wired.com about plans for an alternative lunar habitat, designed in the 1960s. I am something of a fan of Mr Portree’s work: he writes great articles on Space Exploration History that for me capture a sense of excitement, innovation and futurism. In this piece Mr Portree explains plans to use spent Saturn V boosters as habitats on the Moon. For me this evokes a pre-quel to Space 1999 ( a series I was much enamoured with as a child).
