These aren’t the Voyages…

This man wants to buy himself $75k worth of engineering software, rent an office, and pay his own salary for a year, so he can work full time making pretend real.

No rescue after we leave orbit? That’s … really not a problem, since no manned spaceship in human history has ever left Earth orbit. The farthest we’ve ever gone is the Moon, and that’s still in Earth orbit.

By the way, it counts as a spelling error if you randomly insert spaces into compound words like “mockup”.

It would beat joining the Navy, I guess.

(Just so you know. I tried really hard to come up with a pun on the word “collage”, but my brain failed me, I couldn’t think of one.)

Oh man! If it really worked that way, NASA would have so many moon bases they’d need to build a whole second moon just to have room for them all.

Why does he think this will work?

People like this always mystify me. Why does he think he can single-handedly design the most complicated space-ship ever designed? If it was that easy why isn’t NASA doing it? Does he really think that NASA can’t afford to hire one guy? Or does he think that NASA secretly doesn’t want to build awesome spaceships?

Wait, I think I know. All the hard work has already been done.

All he has to do is copy/paste!

    This is the exact kind of Kickstarter I never get. Where do these people get the idea anyone is going to be so enthusiastically excited about their project — which btw always only profits and benefits whoever is making it — they’ll throw free money their way to do something about it? I think it’s great to dream and it’s cute some people have these fantasies and dreams they probably had since they were a kid but…c’mon. I always tell myself these are just joke posts someone made to get a quick laugh and maybe a lucky buck out of but sometimes it’s hard to convince myself :(
