Collier's magazine helps stimulate a surge of American interest in space travel by publishing a beautifully illustrated series of technical articles written by space experts such as Wernher von Braun and Willey Ley. The first of the famous eight-part series appears on March 22 and is boldly titled "Man Will Conquer Space Soon." The magazine also hires the most influential space artist Chesley Bonestell to provide stunning color illustrations. Subsequent articles in the series introduce millions of American readers to the concept of a space station, a mission to the Moon, and an expedition to Mars
