Reservations for a Trip to the Moon, 1950

Von Wired: „In 1950, to promote its new space exhibit, the [American Museum of Natural History] had the brilliant idea to ask museum visitors to sign up to reserve their space on a future trip to the moon, Mars, Jupiter or Saturn. They advertised the opportunity in newspapers and magazines and received letters requesting reservations from around the world. The museum pledged to pass their list on to whichever entity headed to each destination first.“
