Man and the Moon filmstrip (1970s)

The filmstrip Man and the Moon depicts moon colonization as something just around the corner. A video clip of the filmstrip is below and can be found in its entirety at Droppin' Science.

(On a sidenote, the Droppin' Science website says that Man and the Moon was produced before the first moon landing, which isn't true. The narrator mentions the first moon landing midway through the filmstrip.)
