Reading Room: SPEED CARTER: SPACEMAN "Famous Explorers: Mars"

In 2004, we reached Venus and Mercury!
Then, in 2007, men reached another planet...
You do remember this stuff, don't you?
It was only a few years ago!
Oh, it's just a comic book from the 1950s, when we thought we'd be all over the solar system by 2000!
Didn't quite work out that way, did it? 
Damn. ;-(
This story from Speed Carter: SpaceMan #3 (1953) references the previous Famous Explorers tales in its' first paragraph, mentioning the explorations of Venus and Mercury.
Written by Hank Chapman, and illustrated by Al Eadeh.

Note: the astronauts in this story, which takes place three generations in the "past" of Speed Carter, have different uniforms and lower-end technology than what's shown in the Speed Carter tales.
