Rocket to Uranus

Back in the 1950's, everyone was outer-space crazy.

They even had space cadet music records, featuring the official space cadet chorus and orchestra!

You can’t make this up, This is a real record album, the space cadets fly a rocket into Uranus:

And what's with those bulges in their britches?

The term “space cadet” has been used since the 1970’s to describe ADD people and potheads, but there was a time in the 1950’s when space cadets were quite real.

They even had the Space Cadet magazine/comic book. Is it me, or do these guys look way too-old to be cadets?

The old cadet on the right looks like my friend's uncle Vinny from New York City . . .

In 1953 we saw space cadet comic books that featured Tom Corbett as the elderly space cadet.

In the 21st century they are bringing Space Cadets back!
