Truly amazing what the boffins at the Rocket Ship Foundation get up to in their spare time. Just check out this little wonder: an Amazing Rocket Ship in a light bulb. The lights have come on in the workshop! Is there no end to their ingenuity?

The Rocket Ship Foundation is pleased to distribute worldwide this delightful and gay little poem written by an admirer of Amazing Rocket Ship and posted on Valentine’s Day just gone.
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.
In the Amazing Rocket Ship Book of Space J just has to be for Jet-propulsion – don’t all super heroes have one?
J is for Jetpropulsion in the Amazing Rocket Ship ABC of Space
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.

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
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
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.
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.
