Comics with an Electronics Theme
March & November 1972 Popular Electronics

Here are two more tech-themed comics from vintage Popular Electronics magazines. The year was 1972, which was at the peak of NASA's Project Apollo moon manned exploration era. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to the agency at the time, it was also near the end of the era as the moon exploration portion of the program was abruptly cancelled after Apollo 17, in December of 1972. No man has set foot on the moon since then - 45 years as of this writing. One of the comics humorously depicts a situation that for many government departments would be a "situation normal" scenario, but given NASA's overwhelming success, it would not be as expected. The other comic deals with a workplace concept that, while much more "futuristic" at the time, is rapidly becoming a concern of workers today where even fast food workers are being replaced by robots.
