There were a LOT of unknowns about spaceflight in the early 1960s, including what would happen if a rocket exploded en route to orbit. Enter Project Highwater.
There's loads of other olde timey space to dig into on my blog, Vintage Space, too!
And more even older space in my book, BREAKING THE CHAINS OF GRAVITY! You can order your copy on Amazon. Or get a signed hardcover edition on my website!
I've also got a PATREON PAGE! Want to listen to a Vintage Space Podcast or get awesome merch like t-shirts? Please consider becoming a patron! I've set up a Patreon account so I can raise funds to buy the gear I'll need to make an awesome podcast and also work with professionals to make better content all around. Any help is so hugely appreciated.
