Number 1828: Death from space
In real life, some U.S. military planners considered such weapons necessary, and in 1959 the United States had plans to place a military facility on the moon by 1965, with missiles pointed at earth.* Yikes! I remember the paranoia of the era. My parents considered building a bomb shelter, but decided against it. Had they built it I might have had a handy place to store and read my comic books.
The story is what I call a future-in-the-past story. It is set in 1960, now long past for us, but far enough in the future for the purposes of the story, published in Atomic War #4, 1953
