#AtoZBlogChallenge: Rocket Ships

#AtoZBlogChallenge Topic: Rocket Ships

Watching the BBC America Series, The Real History of Science Fiction reminded me that many classic science fiction magazine covers featured, at one time or another, a spaceship powered by rockets, aka, rocket ship. Below are 5 examples of classic science fiction magazine covers featuring a ‘rocket ship’:

Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine from 1958


Astounding Science Fiction Magazine from 1939


Space Science Fiction from 1952


Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction from 1956


Dynamic Science Fiction Magazine from 1953

    Very cool covers. I like them all, but the first one is especially amazing with the image of that rocket launching. Immediately, imagination takes flight.
