GALLERY OF SPACE PULP MAGAZINES

AMAZING ROCKET COVER SMALL

AMAZING STORIES (Oct. 1948), Copyright, 1948, by Ziff-Davis Publishing Company


DISCUSSION

The advancement of space exploration owes much to the pulp publications of the 1930s and later decades. Though much of the described space technology and artwork was scientifically incorrect, the stories and paintings excited the imagination of the nation. This led to expectation that one day technology would put a man on the Moon. The above cover is an example of the vivid "cover-art" of the pulps. The rocket design is in question. It appears as a fuel tank atop rocket engines with no compartment for passengers or cargo.
