How to Survive an Atomic Bomb, 1950
this government-promoted book suggested that men wear wide brimmed hats to protect against the heat flash when the bomb exploded.
This makes the “fridge scene” in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull look like a page from a science textbook.
I am still highly disappointed, every time I think about the attraction, that Disneyland ever removed the PeopleMover. I wish could go there and ride it right now, wave to the CM at the loading dock that I want to go around for another trip, like at Magic Kingdom.
It wasn’t flashy and practically no specific show elements to look at, but the PeopleMover always was relaxing, engrossing and a joy to ride.
This video was shot in 1990.
I couldn’t agree more. When the PeopleMover was removed, Disneyland lost more than an attraction. The PeopleMover trains were like the blood that pumped through the land from its heart, leaving no area without some degree of activity and life.
Ray Bradbury, tinkering with TITAN1, the interstellar space vessel that would have been the centerpiece of EPCOT Center’s space pavilion. In addition to the work he did for the Space pavilion, Bradbury was a consultant on EPCOT Center’s early plans and had impactful influence on Spaceship Earth’s theme and topic.
Ray Bradbury + Space Pavilion = Pure undiluted awesome.
It’s such a shame this was never built
