Ticket prices of $2 are spoken of as high. They were. At the time most people earned $1/hr. The name Bonestell is mentioned. That would be Chesley Bonestell who illustrated the 1949 book “Conquest of Space”. Many teenage boys who read that book went on to be the scientists in the space program. He designed realistic space settings for Hollywood movies. His paintings are on display at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
