The Destination Moon pressbook is big. At 13.5 by 20.25 inches, and 31 pages, it is an impressive promotional campaign for the movie. It is interesting to note that this movie presaged the notion of private enterprise spearheading space exploration, not the government. Of course, NASA did the heavy lifting in the beginning, but now it seems private enterprise is taking the lead (for better or worse). Woody Woodpecker has the honor of explaining the scientific principles behind space travel. For the story behind that, see Wikipedia's entry on Destination Moon.
