I really look forward to the next 10 years of Space Exploration. Just watching a reuseable rocket landing is a great reminder of the Days of Flash Gordon.

Looks like the space ship from "Fobidden Planet".
Are they going to get Leslie Nielson to fly it?
Forbidden Planet..............one of my favorite old movies.
Except this was the ship in the movie...................

Silly. The choice of image in that story is silly. What's even sillier is how close it is to what it seems he's thinking.

Men do not giggle.
We guffaw, chortle, snort, howl, snicker, crack up, die laughing, roll in the aisles.
We do not giggle.

When they launch it, will it sound like a lawnmower and have a candle flame coming out the back?

Personally I'm looking forward to the days when the most efficient design isn't dedicating 80% of a ship to propellant. Achieving escape velocity however kind of requires strapping yourself to the top of a long cylinder packed with explosives. Still though, what we've achieved in far less than a century in putting things into space is nothing short or remarkable. Makes me wish I could stick around for the next hundred when things should really start to get interesting.
