Bradbury Beyond Apollo

Jonathan R. Eller

University of Illinois Press

The naming of Dandelion Crater as a lunar navigation point by the Apollo 15 crew establishes the baseline for assessing Bradbury’s continuing role as a Space Age visionary and talisman. The chapter offers deeper context through a brief summary of his earlier rise to Space Program prominence as described in the previous volume, Ray Bradbury Unbound. As the Apollo program came to an end, Bradbury began work designing the basic ride concept and narrative for what would become Spaceship Earth at Disney World’s EPCOT. Chapter 1 closes with the termination of Apollo, long-term setbacks in Disney’s Spaceship Earth planning efforts, and the effect of these twin disappointments on Bradbury.
