This is heady stuff for this old timer, who, as a kid in WWII only knew rockets as the smallish ones the Navy sent onto Pacific islands we were about to land on. And the V1s and V2s the Germans sent over to bomb England. We've come a long way baby.

Now we are trying to clean up pollution hear on earth we send a car into outer space and not a cheap one either.

Russian Scientists Still Trying To Build a Motorcycle For Outer Space. The Russian space agency Roscosmos has recently detailed plans from Russian scientists who have been hoping to build a “motorcycle” for use by astronauts in outer space. The motorcycle doesn’t look anything like the kinds of bikes in use on Earth; for one thing, this vehicle doesn’t have wheels, which are a fairly important part of traditional motorbikes. Russian scientists have been working on the design on and off since the 1960s. It’s one of those examples that come up regularly in technology, in which a team of experts works on a design for so long that by the time they start making progress, they’ve already been overtaken by others with a similar idea.
