There’s Life on Uranus

Metallic Mechanical Cylinder Coming Out of Uranus (Oh, that's bad)

Metallic Mechanical Cylinder Coming Out of Uranus (Oh, that's bad!)

Did you know there’s not only life on Uranus, but it comes as a cylindrical metallic device that lives in a hole (with a small Oscar the Grouch inside). And it’s just possible that it has a vibrate mode.

Okay, I’m done with the double entendres. These images are from the back covers of Fantastic Adventures magazine from the first nine issues that started in 1939. They’re all by Frank Paul the first of the original SF pulp artists. They’re a bit quaint now, but I’m sure they were viewed with awe-inspired sense of wonder in their day.
