The Hayden Letters


"In 1950, the Museum's Hayden Planetarium began accepting reservations for the first trip into space as part of a publicity campaign for its exhibition Conquest of Space. Letters poured in from around the world with requests to book trips to the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, and beyond, capturing the public's passion and curiosity for space exploration. View a selection of letters from enthusiastic would-be space travelers here."

Just plain awesome.
At the moment I follow news updates on the ISS since Andre Kuipers (Dutch astronaut) is up there :)
