    I have a hard time believing that a machine shaped that way, with large magnets sticking out of it would be anything CLOSE to “stealth technology” haha

    Mornin’ all!
    I found myself staring at today’s strip, remembering Sundays so long ago, when I lay on the floor with the Sunday NY Daily News comics spread out in front of me, reading Tracy and company on their way to the moon.
    Yes, I think this is where I came in…
    Thanks, Mike, Joe, Shelley, Shane and Jim.
    (Oh, one more thing – the ride is still a lot of fun.)

    Frank Boorman was on APOLLO 8, which circled the Moon in 1968 at Christmas. The astronauts read from the Gospel of Luke while in orbit.

    I hope that they have a safe landing.

    Frank Borman was commander of the Apollo 8 spacecraft – the first manned vehicle to leave earth orbit and actually go to another ‘world.’
    The flight took place over the Christmas holiday in 1968, and they read part of the Book of Genesis during one of there public broadcasts.
    They also took a famous photo of the earth rising over the horizon of the moon.

    Wow, I’m so clueless, I thought Frank Boorman was a character from"2001: A Space Odyssey." I thought this was another case of Staton and Curtis dropping references to other franchises.

    I think I must have juxtaposed “Frank Poole” and “David Bowman” in my mind. Mix those two names together and you almost wind up with something like “Frank Boorman.”

    Herp derp.

    I have fractured memories of the original Moon series of strips. Glad to see we get another go. Frank Borman is entirely appropriate for today’s strip.
    .
    I was pleased to see Willy’s Moon material yesterday, too.

    Thank You Team Tracy for returning Dick Tracy and Diet Smith to the moon. And now reuniting Honeymoon with her mother’s moon family. I haven’t been this excited since the early days of the space coupe’s first flights to the moon. Great work Team. Keep up the great work on the strip.

    When I built my Aurora model kit of the Space Coupe a hundred years ago, I was frustrated by the question of scale. The kit included tiny figures about one inch tall, but that didn’t match anything Gould showed us.
    In fact, interior views show the Space Coupe as having a roomy flight deck, but exterior views show passengers appearing in the window as much larger (just as Joe has here!)
    So just how big or small IS that thing? (And don’t tell me it’s bigger on the inside than the outside; the Coupe is many things but it is not dimensionally transendental.)
