Rocket on the Moon

Melvyn Emanuel.

November 26, 2013

I was 10,I think. Image I first saw was a book cover showing a rocket standing on its tail on the Moon surrounded by jagged peaks. Spacemen where standing on the surface and if I recall correctly, another was climbing up, or down, a ladder on the side of the rocket, which was shaped like a V2. This exciting vision was entrenched when I saw George Pal's Movie "Rocket to the Moon" a short while later.
