What a change in 15 years! Conquest of the Moon (non-fiction) details "the" plan for the first exploration of the Moon; in this version the plan is for a 6-week mission of 50 men in three ships. Fifteen year later, we did without the station and sent three men for a week. Still, an awe-inspiring concept.
