My mother won a ticket to the Moon. In 1969 Mrs Anna Dabbs won a ticket for a flight to the Moon. She never got to go. Her son, journalist Alastair Dabbs, conducts a hard-hitting investigation in which he names names. Reputations are ruined. History is set straight. (SLRegister)

This journalist donated his “First Moon Flights” Club card to the collection of the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum.

That was a little defeatist of him.
I prefer Mrs Dabbs' attitude.

Pssh. I wouldn't be surprised if Don Draper and one of his Mad Men advertising cronies were behind this.

Ticket to the Moon

Reminds me of The Lazlo Letters. When she couldn't get the tickets, or cash, she should have pushed for them to record and distribute her just-written Pan Am Moon song, or paint her face on the side of the shuttle.
