Or simply have a discussions about art or space.

NEW: VIDEO PAGE!

Back to the FutureBACK TO THE FUTURE!

A retro look at Hardy imagery from the 1950s! At the time quite innovative ideas, some of which actually reached fruition.

Image (right) is called ‘Ferry Rocket Launch from Woomera’, dated 1954, and hypothesis a future 'shuttle'when Britain had a space programme.

Walking on the MoonDid men really walk on the Moon?

"... apparently up to twenty per cent of Americans (that's one in five) believe that it never happened but was nothing more than a hoax perpetrated by NASA."
