FLIGHT AND TOUCHDOWN 1961-1974
In April 1961, the rules for these books changed again. The
launching of a Soviet citizen into space followed in May by an
American meant there were real spacemen now! These books are
almost anti-climactic because imagination had run into reality.
No predictions now, they showed what spacemen actually wore,
they showed the vehicles and routes they used to get to the Moon.
By July 1969, men had landed on the Moon, it became ordinary
for children to see men on the Moon. With the last Moon landing
in 1972, children's books now wrote of what was beyond landings
on the Moon: Moon colonies, space stations, shuttles, and Mars
