1918 Artwork Imagines Space Travel at a Blistering 3.2km Per Minute

You can't fault a 1918 artist for thinking future spacemen would travel the stars at 3.2km/minute (192 kph). But to think that astronauts would travel open canopy, Wright Brothers style? Cah-rayzee talk.

There's also the matter of the major planets all somehow appearing in the night sky alongside the Moon, but whatever. The pics are cool, in a steam punky, biplanes-in-space kind of way, and all those people on the open air observation decks sure have a great view! [Infomercantile via Dark Roasted Blend]
