    I’m surprised the Fink didn’t put Rodney in the launcher.

    and don’t worry, if you miss it on the way up, you can catch it on your way back down. just remember to not hold your breath lest your lungs explode. oh never mind, the 20,000 Gs will drive all the air out of your lungs. You’re good to go, for good.

    I don’t think he will hit the moon with that trajectory… unless he will orbit the earth first.

    Ah-ha! Now we know where Jules Verne got his ideas from!

    …and I salute you for your politeness.

    Unfortunately a gun can’t get anything to the moon. The fastest a projectile can be made to go is the speed of sound (the expanding hot gasses are traveling just that fast). The Apollo rocket broke the sound barrier before it had gone its own length.

    Is the projectile….errrr… astronaut’s red shirt a tribute to The Guy Who Always Gets Killed on Star Trek?

    ah, “confuse-us” say: the report heard when a firearm goes off is the sound of the projectile (bullet) breaking the sound barrier

    This seems like much cheaper way to get to Mars that the plans NASA is currently looking into. Then, there’s always the question of getting back!! Guess this idea is only good for a “fly by”.

    Factuality (made-up word) has no place in comics. Just relax and go with it.

    Not true. The only theoretical limit to a projectile’s velocity is the speed of light. Even small handguns can shoot bullets at supersonic speeds.

    Col. Hawkins approves

    Why does this remind me of current events?
