In 1949, Popular Science editors reported that rocketry was a huge state secret—journalists and laypeople could only speculate about what the US government might be planning to send into the sky. Ray Pioch’s cover imagines a bright yellow rocket (with protruding spikes that make it look like a mid-century modern light fixture) hurling away from Earth to become a “new moon,” now more commonly known as a satellite.
