SpaceX wants to send 100 people to Mars at once. Is this crazy? Not really; it's actually a pretty old idea.

Like Vintage Space in all its incarnations? Consider becoming a patron! I've set up a Patreon account so I can raise funds to make tshirts, get the podcast rolling, and generally make more of the content that YOU guys love!!

And there's loads of olde timey space to dig into on my blog, Vintage Space, too!

Check out von Braun's Project Mars from Apogee books here.

Like even older space? "Breaking the Chains of Gravity: the Story of Spaceflight Before NASA" is available now! You can order your copy on Amazon.

I'm also selling signed hardcover editions of my book on my website!
