January 24, 1931

THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 24, 1931

* Hermann Oberth
* Early rockets - rocketry
* Space travel - Moon

This 36 page newspaper has a two column headline on page 3: "Movie Shows Flight to Moon by Rocket; Scientists Plan World Group to Realize It"

Interesting text here which takes up about a 1/3 column.

This issue contains other news of the day throughout. It is a rag edition, has minor spine wear, but is otherwise in great condition.

source: wikipedia: Hermann Julius Oberth (25 June 1894 – 28 December 1989) was a Transylvania-born German-Hungarian physicist and engineer of Saxon (mostly) ancestry, who along with the Russian Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and the American Robert H. Goddard, was one of the founding fathers of rocketry and astronautics. The three never were active collaborators, and in fact, never knew one another: instead, their parallel achievements occurred independently of one another.
