This rocket is obviously landing as it has its tripod landing undercarriage deployed. The main rocket is being used to slow the rockets landing - yes, I hear you whisper the words 'empirical evidence' under your breathe and yes, NASA owes him big time. US dollars to the Smith Family Trust headed by Moi, will do just fine.
"Bottom can turn around to any angle" - are the visionary words written at the top of this design page. Yes, exactly! you are thinking "British Navy Harrier Jump Jet" aren't you. And indeed the Harrier vertical take off jet uses the principal of altering the direction of the engines thrust to take off and land vertically. - Again - case proven. RAF - British Pounds Stirling are quite bankable in New Zealand, so bite you stiff upper lip and cough up.
Yes, exactly! I know what you are thinking! Yes, and yes again!- this is "Proto Enterprise" it is from this original concept that the Starship 'Enterprise' was created for the long running television series 'StarTrek' All that the producers and directors have done to this image is shift the large dish from the middle to the front of the spaceship.
Again, substantial royalties are due. Of course a slight royalty reduction of 1% could be obtained by offering me top billing movie roles - Perhaps "Mamma Mia Two" or a starring lead with Brad Pitt and Pierce Brosnahan in minor support roles.
Look familiar? A childrens toy called a "Transformer" ? Welcome to Litigation City all you toy companies. But wait! there is something else - if you look closely you will see in the body of the robot there are food storage rooms - Exactly - A visionary prediction of the merging of the biological and mechanical - you are looking at Protobiologicaltechnoroboticus him/herself.
Shape seem familiar? Yes bingo! you are right, its not the shape of a WW2 Uboat, its the shape of a modern nuclear submarine - Navies of the world, open up your wallets.
It took me a while to work this one out, but with the help of a linguist I was able to translate from the original Martian into English the words "Martian Saucer". Does this provide A posteriori evidence that Peter had contact with beings from another world? Hmmm, well maybe, but my lips are sealed to all low bidders.
This is evidence of the scope of Peters visionary imagination. Within his book I found this bubble gum wrapper firmly glued. Being a commercial product it has obviously been produced by an adult graphic artist. But what can we make of its vision? - could this be a metaphor for subsequent email?? Nah!!! - its visionless graphic gobbledegook! By comparison, such awkward, clunky ideas highlight how well Peter had come to grips with the true nature of his cosmic vision.
Yes, your are right, this is something you have never seen before. It is a "Martian Flying Crab" - This idea goes far into the future of space exploration. It is an idea whose day will come far into our dreaming futures.
Someday on the cusp of great intergalatic events we might all be truely thankful to have by our sides one or more Martian Flying Crabs.
