A love poem penned to Amazing Rocket Ship on the occasion of Valentine’s Day 2017

The letter only reached our office here in Australia this morning.

The poem reads:

Amazing Rocket Ship you are so kind/You do all sorts of things for mankind.

Amazing Rocket Ship I love your grace/It seems to be a beautiful embrace/Of all the world and space beyond./But who helps you understand/What we here on little Earth/Need the most to comprehend?

Amazing Rocket Ship I love you so/Do not leave us in the lurch, never do.

Times are tough with Trump and all:/Amazing Rocket Ship we rely on you.

 

 

ABC of Space: R is for Respect

Jumping ahead for a moment in the ABC Book of Space to R, in light of current political developments in the USA presidential campaign. R s for respect, Donald, something about which you have a deficit.

Dreams and Rocket Ship

Freud once spoke about the dreamscape. Here at Rocket Ship Foundation we do not know much about psychoanalysis – we do know however Rocket Ship can excite and propel thoughts about the future. That is why MAKE-BELIEVE (recently awarded the Noble Prize) is so important. Wake up World.

In my dream I see Rocket Ship land near:

As I dream one night I fancy I see Rocket Ship landing in a field nearby

As I dream one night I fancy I see Rocket Ship landing in a field nearby

Then I dream of a gentle green giant befriending my little Rocket Ship with tender hands:

In my dream I see a gentle green giant consoling and befriending my little Rocket Ship in tender hands

In my dream I see a gentle green giant consoling and befriending my little Rocket Ship in tender hands

 

 

Rocket Ship lands amid a paddock of cows gently grazing

Rocket Ship 007 shown having landed in a field where cows quietly graze. The intention of launch had been to accelerate to a velocity to place RS007 in a geo-stationery orbit.

An unsuccessful launch resulted in RS007 having to put down in a field.

An unsuccessful launch resulted in RS007 having to put down in a field.

However, a malfunction to the propulsion system rendered this unachievable, so a decision was made to land safely in a non-urban environment. Note: no damage, either physical or psychological, was done to either the livestock or Rocket Ship.
