    It’s what made Infocom great.

    When I was a kid in the 60s, I built my first Estes rocket. I spent hours perfecting the paint job. On it’s maiden flight, it went up… up… up… gone. I never did find that thing!

    Rocketry is a blast, especially when you upgrade the engine. I never found my rocket after that either.

    I tried making my own with match heads & foil. Results were less than satisfactory

    Basically, Brian’s advice is extremely timely because, more and more, base reality ‘sucks’! So let us join our fearless leaders in their total “Imagination”! (also known, in some quarters, as ‘delusionment’!)

    Extra points for getting the ignition sequence in the right place!

    Words to live by and I am so glad I grew up in an era where we could do it!

    I was so confident and positive of where space travel would lead at that time in the 1960’s onward. But then reality and politics intruded and one after another leap was curtailed or allowed to die. Had a space station in the 1970’s—-was allowed to crash. No replacements. We even ended our space shuttle project, clunky though the final design was it worked. now we piggy back off other countries. Only the Blue space program of the military is still in operation. Shouldn’t we have a fully operating space stations before going back to Luna then on to Mars first? What we should have built up to now already?

    I’m 62 and I still play with electric trains. If I make it to 82…. I hope I still am!
