Tales of Future Past v2

Just to let you know what I'm doing on Tales of Future Past, this will be a very long project because I have hundreds of pages to transfer, edit, and sometimes completely rewrite.  I started the first version in 2004 and as it grew a lot of copy became horribly dated or technology has advanced to the point where I can do a lot more than I could originally.

Resurrection... maybe



Okay, I haven't done much of anything with this site since 2012 and what with the main Tales of Future Past site in limbo due to a formatting problem that's left it unreadable, I've decided to try an experiment.

I've been experimenting with templates in hopes of repairing the old site, but I haven't anything like the time to do so.  Therefore, I'm going to try to repost some of the site in blog form and see if that's any more effective.

It's just an experiment, but what's to lose?

An now, the US Army's 1959 design for a lunar lander.

It may not have gone to the Moon, but it did look more rockety than the LEM.
