Remember all those fascinating illustrations we used to see in books as kids? I don't mean just the ones we saw in comic books, but in other legitimate grown up magazines of our youthful days. I even remember these kind of cool futuristic illustrations gracing some of our Science text books. I kid you not.
We remember the space race and seeing the first man on the moon. As a kid, we were fed the idea that we were all probably going to get a crack at getting a job constructing some huge domed space facility on Mars. I know, the future is never what we make of it. It's all wild hunches. I must say, even though mankind has accomplished many incredible feats, I am a little disappointed. I really liked all those futuristic illustrations that now seem so camp and silly. That was one nifty looking future we had fed to us.
