the strangely short distance between 70s RPG fanzine and 50s government report.

via S. John Ross, The Meanderings of a Weapon Oriented Mind When Applied In a Vacuum Such As On The Moon shows the strangely short distance between 70s RPG fanzine and 50s government report.

“If the moon and other planets are explored and possibly colonized, the world could eventually see a second evolution of weaponry… through the mortar, howitzer, gun and tank stages until eventually you have missiles, antimissiles and nuclear weapons much as the earth had prior to World War III,” the report noted, curiously blurring the existing state of affairs with an apparent future of war in space above a ruined planet.
