Bradbury Beyond Apollo

University of Illinois Press

Chapter 30 opens with a surprise proposal from Planetary Society founders Carl Sagan and Louis Friedman to send a digitized copy of works by the ABC authors—Asimov, Bradbury, and Clarke—to Mars in 1992. The Russian lander carrying this cargo failed, but an expanded version of the ABC project remained for a future American mission to attempt. Bradbury participated in the 1992 grand opening of the Euro Disney Resort and Park, where he had served as an occasional advisor to Imagineer executive Tim Delany as it was developed. The final episodes of the six-year Ray Bradbury Theater television series were produced and broadcast during 1992; the chapter concludes with an assessment of the series and its record of awards.
