The significance of the timeline in The Moonling

Apart from its historical significance there’s also its repetitive importance.

Karl tells him it is fire and explosions. Wherever it goes it hurts the earthlings as well as his most favourite thing – this beautiful blue and green home of Karl.

Does history repeat itself?

The news that made the headlines back in 1969 is pretty much the same news that’s making the headlines today, the only difference is that today’s news is just bigger and badder. Some examples are; the space race (but this time to Mars), terror attacks, civil unrests, border clashes, racism, perhaps another world war… …Did you know that a massive oil spill at the end of January 1969 in Santa Barbara inspired the first ever Earth Day event in 1970.
