Popular Mechanics, May 1950. This issue is highlighted by a nifty cover illustration and long article on the making of George Pal's wonderful early science fiction movie, Destination Moon. Freely adapted from a Robert A. Heinlein story, this groundbreaking movie heralded the production of a large number of 1950's SF-related movies. Destination Moon cover by Ed Lafferty. The interior article is longer than the typical Popular Mechanics story: Nine partial pages plus six full pages, including a number of fascinating pictures of the miniatures used in the making of the movie. George Pal was also the producer of another of our favorite SF movies, The Time Machine! Cover price $0.35.
