The Future was Exciting, and Still Is
23 February 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

With almost certainly the largest number of surviving kinescope-reordings of any show telecast via DuMont, it's no surprise that a few episodes are online. I saw one recently, called "Man will Conquer Space", with special guest Wernher Von Braun speaking in his adorable German-accent detailing some ideas, some of which worked, some of which didn't, to send man into space and eventually the moon! The spacecraft shown was expected to have three stages to get into space to a space-station, to be used as the beginning-point to get a man to the moon, and the part that would land on the moon was called "ugly", though to me it looked retro-cool. Some parts are dated (like the idea of a wheel-like space station), some still sound worth of reviving, and some were so correct, it isn't surprising the space program was a fairly quick success all things considered (I am amazed that even then, they knew very small natural objects in space could be far more dangerous than large ones). The programme is dated, of course, sometimes in a silly manner, but it's so good-natured and so amazingly, unexpectedly correct (even with some goofs in both space science and in the production of the show), that it ends up being a whole lot of fun. Plus, the next episode (which was given a short promo) was about computers! Talk about ahead-of-it's-Time TV!
