Tintin Moon Rocket From Fiction To Reality
Did you know that Tintin was actually the first man to step on the moon?
Written in 1953, Destination Moon is a book in The Adventures of Tintin comic series by Hergé, which gives a detailed account of the moon's preparation and launching expedition. The red and white pattern on Hergé's Tintin Moon Rocket was based on measuring movements in a rocket during launching, developed by NASA.
The innovation of the rocket ship
It was common in literature and films for spaceships to be drawn as a cigar shape. Still, Hergé wanted to make sure his Tintin moon rocket was at the cutting-edge of technology, a rocket of its era, inspired by the drawings of the German scientist Wernher von Braun, who designed the V2.
The chequered pattern made it easier to observe the Tintin Rocket Ship rolling and spinning at take-off. Making the Tintin rocket ship a beautiful decoration piece that fits into any room.
