Classic Cover #6 - Flag Over Moon Jima

Almost certainly inspired by the iconic "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima" photograph taken just eight years before this magazine was published, this cover shows three astronauts struggling with a much larger flag than the one left by Apollo 11.  Why it takes three people with the Moon's much lower gravity is a question the artist should have asked.  Still, it has a 1950's Sci-Fi feel that is very cool.
