* RetroRocket: The Moon-rocket, as seen [[http://www.torpedo-emscher.de/wr/union/rakete/img/tintin_rocket10_.jpg here]]. This is an interesting case as it's combined with a [[ShownTheirWork frighteningly prescient]] depiction of the ColdWar space program. Blueprints and launchpad shown [[http://www.projectrho.com/rocket/rocket3p.html#tintin here]]. The rocket's external appearance is based on the German V2.

* SwissCheeseSecurity: Averted; Tintin and Haddock have to go through countless security checkpoints to get to the compound, which is even guarded by anti-aircraft guns. Nevertheless the project has somehow been infiltrated...

After returning to Marlinspike following a trip, Tintin and Haddock are surprised to find that Calculus had mysteriously left some time earlier. They immediately receive a telegram from the Professor explaining that he's in Syldavia and asking them to join him there. They do so and are led to a heavily guarded scientific research compound, where they are greeted by Calculus' assistant engineer Frank Wolff and the Professor himself. The latter claims they are in Syldavia's Atomic Research Center, which recruited Calculus for their Astronautical section. Calculus is currently completing plans for a nuclear power rocket that will be able to land on the Moon...and he called Tintin and Haddock so that they will be part of the landing party. Despite both having some misgivings about the plan (especially Haddock) they accept.

* {{Ruritania}}: Syldavia. Previously featured in ''Recap/TintinKingOttokarsSceptre'' (1939), Syldavia is an atypically detailed version ofthis trope. It has its own flag, royal dynasty, historical events and even a language created by Hergé. The made-up language, despite being written in Cyrillic script, was remarkably not Slavic but a dialect of Flemish/Dutch with some curious phonetics. In this album Syldavia becomes the setting for a fictionalized space program.

* SpoilerTitle: The album ends on a CliffHanger as the astronauts have passed out and Earth has lost communication with them. As mission control gets increasingly nervous, the {{Narrator}} asks the reader rhetorically (paraphrased): "Will Tintin and his friends survive this dangerous mission to make it to the moon? Find out in ''[[{{Recap/TintinExplorersOnTheMoon}} Explorers On The Moon''!" The title of the next album points out that they do make it to the Moon.

* ExpoSpeak: The "acting the goat" scene is actually an InfoDump that explains the features of the moon rocket, but Calculus' rage makes it entertaining.

* DrivesLikeCrazy: Calculus hijacks a military vehicle to go demonstrate the results of his labor to Haddock. He driving skills fit the trope. Though he was enraged with Haddock at this point and not in his right state of mind. He even mentions that he doesn't have a driving license.
