Framed reprint of The Wall Street Journal's business-like take in the days before Apollo 11 took off on its way to the moon . The Journal noted in the headline and the lede that the endeavor had cost the country $24 billion, back when billions meant something.
Success at this point was not a certainty, the Journal reported, as "spacemen concede that important unknowns remain."
Page A1 coverage also included a simple infographic, not typical in the pages of the 1960s Journal.
