Amazing Rocket Ship celebrates World Space Week with new sculpture

The Rocket Ship Foundation is proud to celebrate World Space Week with the launch of RS026 [in the complete catalogue], inspired by the ever popular Jack in the Box toy.

Technical details: Recycled tin; four coat hangers for springs; cotton cloth and thread; copper tube; wood; silver solder. Base at 14cm square. Height when erect: 40cm.

Rocket Ship Mobile: the video

Here it is: the very first video from Rocket Ship Foundation (shot at considerable expense) of the mobile version that can sit on your desktop. The globe at right is a representation of the Earth – it is coloured white and blue. These desk-top mobiles are available as limited editions and can be ordered direct from Rocket Ship Foundation through the Merchandise Page.

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

Big week in space news – and news too from Rocket Ship

What a week it has been. There’s the Breakthrough Initiatives with funding stumped up to pursue the likelihood of other intelligent life in the universe. This project is enthusiastically backed by Rocket Ship as we have always believed Planet Earth is not the only inhabited object in the known universe. Congratulations to all at Breakthrough and if there is anything we here at Rocket Ship can do just ask.

Just to prove that probably there are other life forms out there, Nasa announced today it has discovered Kepler 452b – a distant and habitable ‘cousin’ of Earth in a galaxy some 1400 light years away. Fantastic!

To add to this might seen like trying to steal the show, but modesty prevents us from such grandstanding. Instead, Rocket Ship today announces its own small contribution to space science: the MAssive Kinetic Enabling Bohrian ELectro-InvasivE Vector Emission device, or MAKE-BELIEVE, in short. MAKE-BELIEVE is phenomenal advance in space science as it enables small objects to transmute into larger ones, or vice-versa. The physics behind this breakthrough are a closely guarded secret here at Rocket Ship HQ but we attest that MAKE-BELIEVE makes it possible for you to climb through the eye of the needle and go places you have only dreamed about.

Rocket Ship celebrates 20 July 1969

Special commissioned portrait by Rocket Ship of an iconic moment 46 years ago when astronauts from the Apollo 11 space mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, set foot on the Moon. This moment is captured here by our artist and is drawn from the many photographs taken by the two astronauts as they spent those precious few hours on the Moon collecting rocks and setting up experiments. Since that historic date on 20 July 1969 space exploration has continued (although plans to establish a Moon colony did not come to fruition) and Rocket Ship is the latest in our endeavours as a species to push the frontiers and make space for everyone.

Celebrating 1969 when the first people from Planet Earth set foot on the Moon.
