September 15th, 1965 - a date that will live in small screen history. That night, TV audiences around the U.S. watched the launch of the Jupiter 2 (originally called the Gemini 12). This state-of-the-art spacecraft carried The Robinson family, the ship's pilot, Major Don West, and the Class M-3 B9 robot on their mission to explore Alpha Centauri. Unfortunately, they ended up far off course as a result of an additional passenger, Dr. Zachary Smith. The Jupiter 2 with all hands aboard became Lost in Space! The hit Sci-Fi show ran for three seasons, and not only delighted viewers back then, but still has a loyal and growing fan base to this day. One of the show's original cast, Mark Goddard (a.k.a. Major Don West), recently penned a book about his travels through the universe onboard the Jupiter 2. Titled Three Years Lost in Space, you can order your autographed copy at Mark's website - www.themarkgoddard.com - I received my copy earlier this week and have just begun my journey to get Lost in Space all over again. The book is packed with anecdotes, stories and amazing photos and drawings. It is a must for all Mark Goddard and Lost in Space fans! Order your copy today!
