View-Master: America's Man in Space 3-Reel Set

As a kid in the 1960's, following America's progress in the Space Race was a big part of my life. I built and launched as many Estes rockets as my meager newspaper route-funded budget allowed. When John Glenn made his historic Earth-orbiting flight in the Mercury Freedom 7 space capsule on February 20, 1962, I was a mere 3 years old, but my parent say I was an ardent aerospace fan beginning at a very young age. Most American households probably had at least on View-Master stereo slide viewer, and ours was amongst them. I loved the 3D Peanuts slide sets, and especially any with an airplane or space exploration theme. My originals are long gone, but fortunately I was able to buy this near-perfect set titled, "America's Man in Space," on eBay.

Eventually, I will post "Apollo Moon Landing, " The Conquest of Space," and "Project Apollo."
