Bear In Space: The Truth Is Out There

Bear In Space is a 1970 Russian children's book about a bear who fakes a moon landing. It shows all the neat camera tricks and stuff the bear used to make it look like he really landed on the moon.

John at Dreams of Space, the awesome vintage kids & space blog, mentions the important lesson of not believing everything we're told or see.

Like, say, your country's Cold War rival claiming to have landed on the moon the year before.

John's also got a nice 2001 mention, which makes sense, since Kubrick was the guy who faked the US moon landing. Coincidence? I don't think so.

I can totally see the family on The Americans having read this to their kids.
