Stranger Than Fan Fiction!

Posted by Dirck on 20 November, 2020

Let me start thus: I am not in the Elon Musk Boosters Club. I think it’s great that he’s shoving electric cars down the invisible throat of the free market, and the self-recovering rockets of SpaceX are both economically sensible and really neat… but I also think that allowing these achievements (which, as much as he may have been the Man With A Vision, he had plenty of help with from loads of other and probably smarter people) to spackle over some of the inevitable problems a human being contain. Especially a human being with vast wealth. That stuff unbalances the brain juice.

That said, I am a great fan of Gerry Anderson.

The other thing I honor SpaceX for is making prophets out of all the film makers from the 1950s and ’60s who simulated the landing of a spacecraft simply by running some stock footage of a V2 launch backward.
