Tomorrowland Rocket



The Rocket to the Moon is poised for takeoff in this nice (undated) photo. I've always thought that the rocket was pretty awesome. It reminds me of some of Chesley Bonestell's wonderful paintings from the 40's and 50's (where the rockets always landed on the moon in an upright position). Check out the awesome example of his artwork!

I'd love to see a movie using this kind of retro sci-fi design. Are you listening, Pixar?

Great image as usual. I have always liked the lights in Tomorrowland and the way the posters were displayed.

I'm guessing 1956, based on the poster...
