1st NASA spacecraft launch...



Item # 670365

October 12, 1958

MINNEAPOLIS SUNDAY TRIBUNE, October 12, 1958

* Pioneer 1 launch
* 1st NASA spacecraft


The top of the front page has a four column headline: "Air Force Rocket Soars 80,000 Miles Into Space, But Fails to Reach Moon" with subhead, related photo and diagram. Much more on pages 56 & 57, loads of text. First report coverage on the launch of "Pioneer 1" which became the first spacecraft launched by NASA, the newly formed space agency of the United States.
Complete 1st section only with all 16 pages, light toning at the margins, tiny binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
