Launch Party – A Rocket Snow Globe

Imagine this: a small crowd gathers to see a rocket launch. Dressed in their travel finest, they prepare to be amazed, and perhaps to applaud politely as the rocket lifts off into a grand adventure.

Is it a manned ship, or just a test? Will the soft breeze of a lady’s fan protect her from the afterburn? Or is this launch party just for show?

Three, two, one … we’ll soon find out.

Rockets, Wormholes and Galactic Carwashes

Who really knows what a worm hole looks like? Is it a shimmering spot where one passes through to the other side of space? A spot of Jell-O in the fabric of the universe? Or perhaps it looks like some kind of space-age vacuum cleaner carwash? You won’t know until you try it.

This snow globe was an exploration of a rocket, being pulled into a force-field or perhaps, the galactic car wash. I’m never sure until it comes out on the other side, spit-shined and gleaming bright, or if it vanishes into uncertain darkness. But the pull into the liquid-filled tube is undeniable.
