Where’s my rocket backpack II: Redux (the editor’s version)

April 15, 2008

Some time ago I complained about not having a rocket backpack. Well, I sort of complained. I pointed out that a lot of things we’d been promised hadn’t been delivered.

Well, cross off rockets because the Rocket Racing League is ready to start their motors!

That’s right, it deserves an exclamation mark. Only one though.

From the site:

The RRL was established by X-Prize founder Peter Diamandis and two-time Indianapolis 500 champion team partner Granger Whitelaw to advance the technology and increase public awareness of space travel.

You just know the Millennium Falcon can make that run in less than 12 parsecs…

The future is here and it is us (or are we it? I forget)

  1. Sure, rocket packs sound good, but just wait until everyone gets one. No off to the wide blue yonder for you,it will all be “get down to the shops and buy some milk.” Or “stop looking at those sports-model rocket packs! You need a family size one.” And “and if you kids don’t be quiet, I will turn this rocket pack around and we will all go home!”
